Women warlords : an illustrated military history of female warriors by Timothy Newark( Book )

10 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women Warlords is the first book to reveal the reality of female military leadership in ancient and medieval warfare. It discovers true Amazon chieftains buried beneath the steppes of southern Russia and reconstructs their unique society in which women fought alongside men and could only marry when they had slain an enemy. It describes the last campaign of the African Amazons of Dahomey battling against the French in 1892, including rarely seen photographs of the women warriors. The book follows Queen Zenobia's remarkable attempt to set up an Empire of the East, independent from the Romans. It relates stories of women crusaders, the sexual flaws of Celtic Queens, and places Joan of Arc in the context of other contemporary women warlords, equally victorious but far less famous. Women Warlords is about the women who held real power, their strategy and tactics, and their charismatic leadership and fighting courage. The warriors include Artemisia, Zenobia, Medb, Cartimandua, Boudica, Aethelflaed, Matilda of Tuscany, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and Jeanne de Montfort. Tim Newark reconstructs their triumphant careers from contemporary sources and medieval chronicles. Angus McBride's illustrations recreate the authentic appearance of the warlords and their warriors."--Dust cover

For hundreds of years, Irish soldiers have sought their destiny abroad. Stepping aboard ships bound for England, America, or Europe, young Irishmen have been hungry for adventure, a self-made fortune or the means to carry on a cause back home. Wherever he has travelled, whichever side of the battlefield he has stood, the tales of his exploits have never been forgotten. The Irish soldier has always been in the thick of the fight. Leaving his birthplace, he travelled with hope, sometimes wanting to bring a liberating revolution to his fellow countrymen. Often seeking adventure, the Fighting Irish have been found in all corners of the British Empire, winning new territories, gaining a reputation as fearless soldiers. Some sailed to America and joined in frontier fighting or demonstrated their loyalty to their new homeland in the bloody combats of the American Civil War. Others took the opportunity to carry on their home-borne disputes with campaigns against the British Empire in Canada and South Africa. The Irish soldier has been in the thick of war during the twentieth century-facing slaughter at the Somme, surviving prison camps in Korea, desperate last-stands in the Congo-and continuing sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan. In "Fighting Irish", acclaimed historian Tim Newark tells their tales in the dramatic words of the soldiers themselves
