Free (Kindle) Band of Sisters: American Women at War in Iraq [Military Experience]
Band of Sisters: American Women at War in Iraq by Kirsten Holmstedt is the author's own study of women marines, which became part of her master's thesis. This is free courtesy of publisher Stackpole Books and has won two 2007 awards, according to the blurb.
Currently free @ Amazon (not available to Canadians). Likely won't show up elsewhere, as Stackpole freebies have been Amazon-only in the past.
In Iraq, the front lines are everywhere . . . and everywhere in Iraq, no matter what their job descriptions say, women in the U.S. military are fighting--more than 155,000 of them.
A critical and commercial success in hardcover, Band of Sisters presents a dozen groundbreaking and often heart-wrenching stories of American women in combat in Iraq, such as the U.S.s first female pilot to be shot down and survive, the military's first black female pilot in combat, a young turret gunner defending convoys, and a nurse struggling to save lives, including her own.
