Reading novels about WW1 can teach us all the ways women were essential to the war efforts around the world. Many American women volunteered despite not having the right to vote until after World War I ended. From spies and nurses to couriers and even the first female members of the US Navy, these brave women paved the way for victory in the war while advancing rights for women. Other books on the list highlight what it was like on the homefront, especially when soldiers returned with new mental and physical challenges.
