Women at War in the Classical World

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Many readers may only see women at war as those who played a critical role in two World Wars. This view may be coloured by the Christian and Norman attitude to women as second class citizens but, even then, women were at least victims of war and a very small number were more actively involved as monarchs and, occasionally, as fighters. In the ancient world, women were more closely involved, but not on the scale of those who served during two world wars. – Highly Recommended.
