Eleven books about women in the U.S. armed forces

At Bustle, Caitlin White tagged eleven books that tell the stories of women in the U.S. armed forces, including:
Neverhome by Laird Hunt

What jumps out from Laird Hunt’s Civil War novel Neverhome is the voice of Ash, the protagonist who disguises herself as a man to fight for the Union. Hunt gives a lyrical tone to the horror of the war, and you won’t be able to stop turning the pages as you begin to learn Ash’s secrets and her reasons for leaving behind her husband to fight. And it’s Ash you feel for on her Odyssey-like journey, and it’s her honest, knowing voice that you cling to and relate to amid the destruction.
