The Tortoise and the Soldier

I love these short historical stories that give apicture of what life was like during a certain time period without being overwhelming and also a cute human interest story.  In this book, the soldier Henry meets a tortoise in a crater while being shot at.  He later goies back for the tortoise and secretly keeps himon board his ship for the rest of the war.  Cute story, good length, nice illustrations.
