Battle Cries and Lullabies: Women in War from Prehistory to the Present by Linda Grant De Pauw, Linda Grant De Pauw

In this groundbreaking work, which covers thousands of years & spans the globe, Linda Grant De Pauw explores the varied roles women have played in war. De Pauw depicts women as victims & as warriors, as nurses, spies, sex workers, & wives & mothers of soldiers, as warrior queens leading armies into battle, & as baggage carriers marching in the rear. Beginning with the earliest archaeological evidence of warfare & ending with the dozens of wars in progress today, BATTLE CRIES & LULLABIES demonstrates that warfare has always & everywhere involved women. Following an introductory chapter on the questions raised about womens participation in warfare, the book presents a documented, chronological survey linked to familiar models of military history. De Pauw provides historical context for current public policy debates over the role of women in the military. Whether one applauds or deplores their presence & their actions, women have always been part of war. To ignore this fact grossly distorts our understanding of human history. Linda Grant De Pauw is a Professor of History at George Washington University & the founder & president of The MINERVA Center, an institution devoted to promoting womens military studies. She is the author of several books, including FOUNDING MOTHERS: WOMEN OF AMERICA IN THE REVOLUTIONARY ERA, REMEMBER THE LADIES: WOMEN IN AMERICA 1750-1815, & SEAFARING WOMEN.
