- "Once a Warrior: How One Veteran Found a New Mission Closer to Home," by Jake Wood (Sentinel). Marine sniper Jake Wood tells the story of his return to civilian life and new mission to help struggling veterans recover from their trauma and bring aid to disaster-affected communities.

(Nonfiction)
- "Thank You for Caring: A Celebration of Nurses, Doctors, and Other Health-Care Heroes" by Mary Zaia (Castle Point).

(Nonfiction)
- "The Iron Sea: How the Allies Hunted and Destroyed Hitler's Warships" by Simon Read (Hachette). The veteran military historian details the hunt for Adolf Hitler's fleet by brave Allied bomber crews, sailors, and commandoes who "sunk the Bismarck" and won a hard-fought victory over Nazi Germany. The book incorporates official war diaries, combat reports, eyewitness accounts, and personal letters into the fast-paced narrative. (Nonfiction)
- "The Last Brahmin: Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. and the Making of the Cold War" by Luke A. Nichter (Yale University Press). The first biography of the Republican statesman at the center of American foreign policy for a generation, serving as advisor to five presidents, from Dwight Eisenhower to Gerald Ford, and as ambassador to the United Nations, Vietnam, West Germany, and the Vatican. He was twice tapped as ambassador to Vietnam, and in the 1970s paved the way for permanent American ties with the Holy See. The book argues that Lodge did more than anyone else to transform the Republican Party from a regional, isolationist party into the nation's dominant force in foreign policy. (Nonfiction)
- "A Libertarian Walks Into a Bear: The Utopian Plot to Liberate an American Town (And Some Bears)" by Matthew Hongoltz-Hetling (PublicAffairs). In 2004, a group of libertarians got together and hatched the Free Town Project, a plan to take over an American town and completely eliminate its government. But when they descended on Grafton, New Hampshire, and public funding shrank, the anything-goes atmosphere soon caught the attention of Grafton's neighbors: the bears, who smelled food and opportunity. The publisher describes the book as "the sometimes funny, sometimes terrifying tale of what happens when a government disappears into the woods. Complete with gunplay, adventure, and backstabbing politicians." (Nonfiction)
