Seven top books of war and sacrifice

One title on People magazine's Memorial Day reading list:
Shoot Like A Girl by Major Mary Jennings Hegar

In her memoir, Major MJ Hegar recounts her time as a combat pilot — one especially terrifying search-and-rescue mission earned her a Purple Heart. Despite this heroism, Hegar discovers that her biggest fight is at home. In Shoot Like A Girl, she delves into her battle to end the military’s Ground Combat Exclusion Policy. (She eventually won the lawsuit, which lifted the ban so women can join the front lines.) If that's not badass enough, Angelina Jolie will play Hegar in the film adaption.
