In LibreOffice Master Document is designed for working with books and chapters. That's what we use with the Users Manual.

There's lots of good help on the web, search "libreoffice master document"

If you are aiming to produce E-books you should give some thought to the final format too. For example .EPUB, which is a fairly popular format uses archives of html files, not text or .doc.

The method suggested by Jerry, using Libre Office, also has the advantage of being able to Export in EPUB. What ever you decide to do, I would not recommend a simple
concatenation of files into one big one. Keeping the chapters separate in a master document is much easier to to work with than a massive single file.
