In this groundbreaking work, covering thousands of years of history and spanning the globe, Linda Grant De Paw explores the varied roles women have played in war. De Pauw depicts women as victims and as warriors; as nurses, spies, sex workers, and wives and mothers of soldiers; as warrior queens leading armies into battle, and as baggage carriers marching in the rear. Her historical survey provides context for current public policy debates over women in the military.
