Twenty-five books about women in war

At Bustle Kristian Wilson tagged twenty-five top books about women in war, including:
Ravensbrück: Life and Death in Hitler's Concentration Camp for Women by Sarah Helm

The Nazi regime imprisoned women at many of its concentration camps, but Ravensbrück was the only prison designed to house women exclusively. A very small percentage of its prisoners were Jewish; most were political enemies of the Third Reich, lesbians, former experiment victims, and prostitutes. Sara Helm's Ravensbrück is the story of the camp and the women it held.
