The Times
'The individual tales of women who took up arms on the battlefield - and there are many - bring great life and colour to the page . . . An important contribution to the field of military history'
Wavell Reviews
Outstanding . . . Percy's text is hard-hitting, and evidence-based
BBC History Magazine
Fascinating . . . in evidencing women's long military service, Percy combats . . . the final exclusion - from the historial record

The Monthly Magazine

Ambitious, wide-ranging and learned
New York Journal of Books
Truly impressive and rigorously researched, this is a book that should be included in all libraries
Wall Street Journal
Lively and vivid
