Description

About the Book: Sisters in Arms : Female warriors from antiquity to the new millennium

In October 2018 Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson announced that all roles in the military would now be open to women. Although this marks a historic shift, allowing British women into combat roles, their presence on the front lines dates back to Antiquity. Beginning with the founding myth of the Amazons, in reality female warriors of a nomadic tribe to whom the Greeks attributed super-heroic powers, Julie Wheelwright explores the history of women in arms. She traces our fascination with these figures, many of whom successfully disguised themselves as men, using primary sources and their own words to bring their experiences vividly to light. Among these forgotten heroines are Christian Davies, Irelands most famous eighteenth­century soldier, who received poems from adoring women who claimed that she represented a resurgence of 'the Amazonian race? Sarah Edmonds, who left her native Canada and was among hundreds of women to enlisted on both sides during the American Civil War; Maria Bochkareva a private in the Tsars Army and leader of the Womens Battalion of Death in 1917; and Captain Flora Sandes, hero of the Serbian Army who toured Australia, thrilling her audiences with tales of bravery and patriotism. .

The book follows the evolution of women in combat from the Sythian women who begat the Amazonian myth to the passing womens popularity of the eighteenth century to their re­emergence as the nations pride and joy in various European countries in the twentieth century. The book also explores the formalisation of womens military roles and questions the contemporary relationship between masculinity and combat.
