A companion to women's military history by Barton Hacker( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Military institutions have everywhere and always shaped the course of history, but women's near universal participation in them has largely gone unnoticed. This volume addresses the changing relationships between women and armed forces from antiquity to the present. The eight chapters in Part I present broad, scholarly reviews of existing literature to provide a clear understanding of where we stand. An extended picture essay documents visually women's military work since the sixteenth century. The book's third part comprises eight articles, more narrowly focused than the survey articles but illustrating some of their major themes. Military history will benefit from acknowledging women's participation, as will women's history from recognizing military institutions as major factors in molding women's lives
