Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ray Dunbobbin

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1965

When Czech airman Jan Bozdech adopts an abandoned Alsatian puppy in the midst of war in 1940, little does he know that this small act of kindness will change his life. Antis, the Alsatian, becomes a constant companion and source of strength for Jan and his fellow airmen during the remainder of the war and long after Jan returns to his native Czechoslovakia. Never sentimental, this moving and true tale of love and faithfulness is reminiscent of Sheila Burnford’s excellent Bel Ria. Dunbobbin handles accents, personalities and emotions with aplomb, always keeping the focus on Jan and Antis’s determination to survive by relying on each other’s strength. This story crosses age, nationality and gender lines with its universal message. Dog-lovers and non-animal fans alike will be moved to tears. E.E.L.
