But the change that’s now underway will be the most significant in human history, as soldiers from the world’s richest countries will soon rarely come face to face with their enemies.

    The Dog Who was an Official Prisoner of War

    In 1936, the crew of the British gunboat HMS Gnat lacked a mascot, and the captain and crew decided to remedy that situation before starting patrols on the Yangtze River.
