        War Dog Letter | History Detectives

        THE DETECTIVE: Tukufu Zuberi.

        THE PLACE: Gulfport, Mississippi and Fort Lee, Virginia.

        THE CASE: A World War II document collector from Kansas City, Kansas has a cryptic letter between a soldier and another military man. The soldier explains that military investigators have questioned him about a man named Prestre--specifically about his character and qualifications as a dog trainer. The writer is nervous, “Pardon my terrible typing … I was afraid one of the officers would come in … No one should open your letters … I think you can write to me safely.” Our contributor wants to know why the United States military was investigating Prestre, and what the dogs were being trained to do. The military put great effort into a new “War Dogs” program during WWII. What went wrong on Cat Island? History Detectives travels to this remote island to unlock the mystery.
