The tale begins with Lee Duncan, a France-stationed World War I corporal who rescues a German Shepherd mother and her three puppies from a bombed-out European dog kennel.

He gives the mother and two of the pups away to different owners, but keeps the third puppy for himself, and names the spunky canine Rin Tin Tin.

The general of the base expressly forbids Lee from keeping a high-strung dog on the premises, but Lee finds a solution by befriending one of the POWs - German dog trainer Nikolaus Egger.

Egger teaches Rin Tin Tin such amazing feats as rescuing wounded soldiers from the battlefield and the dog soon finds movie stardom.
