Men have made war for gold, for land, and to put others in chains for millennia. No invention or philosophy has changed that, not gunpowder, not airplanes, not democracy, or even splitting the atom. Whatever the era, whatever the weapon, man has made war on his neighbors. The nature of conflict never changes, because human nature has not changed.
But how might that change if it were no longer just humanity going to war—if animal instincts, strengths and skill were to join the battlefield?
Dogs of War is an anthology exploring what warfare looks like when the combatants are no longer fully human. It contains twenty three stories about how war changes when those who do the fighting have changed, and how much it stays just the same.
