Adventures From History's Greatest Female FightersBook - 2003
Women from all walks of life--peasants, queens, princesses, wives, mothers, and sisters--have fought for freedom and honor throughout history. These brave (and sometimes bloodthirsty) women have been too often lost in the male-dominated annals of military history. In this fun, informative, and beautifully designed volume, the true stories of women from around the globe come to life, including the Amazons; Lozen, Apache warrior; Tomoe Gozen of Japan; Queen Boudicca of the Celts; Lakshmibai of India, and the Trung sisters of Vietnam. But women warriors aren't just ancient mythology; also featured are the modern women who grace the playing fields, small and big screen, comic books, and the political arena--from Joan of Arc to Mother Teresa and Madeline Albright to the Powerpuff Girls.
