Band Of Sisters: American Women At War In Iraq

  • Now available in paperback
  • Winner of the 2007 American Authors Association Golden Quill Award
  • Winner of the 2007 Military Writers Society of America Founder's Award

    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.
