In March 1944, deep in the New Guinean jungle, a little Yorkshire Terrier was found hiding in a fox hole. Her presence there was a mystery but American soldier Bill Wynne took her on as her new owner.

He named her Smoky, never dreaming that his little mate would turn out to be quite so extraordinary. After her many daring deeds as part of her war effort, Smoky went on to become a beloved performer on children's television.
