Just been handed the book "Warrior Women", and a search threw up a review last year on Arrse. So let's give the women warriors a go. Notable women involved with war who fought or played their part in battle since records began right through to now. Women have been with special operations, they've led Armies and famously worked in codebreaking. Warrior women also crop up in films and TV so keeping to real historical women warriors might be too restrictive. Something for everyone in there and not just Xena, but who'd post her anyway Starting off with Bouddica against the Romans. Joan of Arc, obviously. "The only thing the English ever cooked properly was Joan of Arc. And they still burnt her" (say the French). More recently, women like "Private Michelle Norris of the Royal Army Medical Corps,awarded the first woman MC. Kate Nesbitt, second woman, first in the Royal Navy, for acts in Afghanistan in March 2009 as a Medical Assistant attached to 1 RIFLES". Just a few to start with and there must be loads more.
