A Soldier and a Woman by Gerard J. DeGroot

The question of womens role in the military is extremely topical. A Woman and a Soldier covers the experiences of women in the military from the late mediaeval period to the present day. Written in two volumes this comprehensive guide covers a wide range of wars: The Thirty Years War, the French and Indian Wars in Northern America, the Anglo-Boer War, the First and Second World Wars, the Long March in China, and the Vietnam War. There are also thematic chapters, including studies of terrorism and contemporary military service. Taking a multidisciplinary approach: historical, anthropological, and cultural, the book shows the variety of arguments used to support or deny womens military service and the combat taboo. In the process the book challenges preconceived notions about womens integration in the military and builds a picture of the ideological and practical issues surrounding women soldiers.
