Why read it?
1 author picked Women, Armies, and Warfare in Early Modern Europe as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
This is one of the first scholarly studies of women in and around the battlefield. It is notable for its depiction of women who were active in warfare who were not queens or larger-than-life heroines. It also includes what I think is hands-down the best discussion of the uncomfortable relationship between military history and gender studies that plagues all attempts to write about women in war.
