Today we recognize our fellow citizens, current and past members of the military, for their service to the country. In this book list you'll find a variety of non-fiction texts including books on WWI, WWII, and the wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. These books detail the experiences of soldiers across generations and wars, many using our servicemen's and servicewomen's own words, including their experiences upon returning home.
