B&W Photographs; 190 pages; Spine ends faintly bumped, dust wrapper faintly edgeworn; looks unread. A lovely copy. ; 'Spies, soldiers, and strategists: from time immemorial, women have played these wartime roles and more—protecting the home, fighting as visionaries and patriots, following the camps, and going to sea. You'll see how Boudicca, the Celtic warrior queen, led a revolt against the cruel Roman army in 48 A.D.; and how Joan of Arc, with religious fervor, battled bravely against British forces. You'll also learn of 48 other fearless heroines. Includes illustrations from archives throughout the world. '
