5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL BOOK, 10 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really superb book, with lovely illustrations, a book every girl who's ever been told she's 'just a girl' should read, and every boy who's ever thought that as well. There are some truly amazing women listed here. women who have shown they are just as clever as men, some of them more so, but so often overlooked. Highly recommended.

The Women Soldiers of Dahomey (Women in African History)
The Women Soldiers of Dahomey (Women in African History)

Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting and easily readable tale of female acheivement in a 'man's world'., 11 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice children's book that is also informative enough to make it an interesting read for adults. The female soldiers of Dahomey were no match for European firepower, but they fought bravely and showed that a regiment of women could be an effective force against opponents of equal armament, fighting successfully against other African tribes. They were not the only entirely female military unit in history, but they are a colourful and interesting subject in themselves, and a good answer to those who say women have no place in combat. Books like this help an understanding of true historical fact, not the history written to suit a particular point of view, which, being largely written by men, has tended to write female warriors out of the historical record altogether, since a woman who equals a man in battle does little for the male macho image. I'd recommend this little volume from that standpoint, and also as an interesting addition to the history of Africa and its people. Any black woman can feel proud of the Dahomey amazons, and should.

5.0 out of 5 stars A FINE INTRODUCTION TO A LONG SUPRESSED SUBJECT, 11 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good introduction for young people to a so often overlooked aspect of history, the fact that a woman can be as fine and brave a warrior as a man, sometimes even better, can lead armies, countries too, something that so many men would not like to admit. If a woman can be as macho as a man, then how macho is the man in the first place? I'd recommend this little volume for any girl who doesn't think she's as good as a boy, or any boy who'd agree with her. It's limited, with only a few historic figures mentioned, but its a good start and might lead to further reading on the subject. Anything that helps to change attitudes and set the true record of history straight is to be welcomed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The answer to the question 'Can a woman equal a man in battle?', 11 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very interesting book, listing a huge number of women who broke the mould of their times and equalled or even surpassed the men in battle or leadership. Both genuine historical figures and those of myth and legend are listed, and I suppose it might have been helpful if the entries had been marked accordingly, say with 'H' for historic and an 'M' for myth, but that really isn't a problem. Simply reading each entry tells you which are which in the case of names you've never heard of. It is astonishing how many women, individuals and sometimes even entire regiments of women, fought in the ancient world, the Middle Ages and down to our own time. This book is a 'must read' for anyone, especially men, who think women can't do so-called 'men's jobs'. Not only can they, but they've been doing it for thousands of years. If you don't believe that, despite the evidence of female police officers, firefighters, soldiers and so on in our own time, then read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASY AT ITS BEST, 11 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yet another fantastic book from a great author. Kristen Britain has a wonderful gift of interesting characters, ones that you really care about. She blends horror and humour with great skill, one moment your heart is in your mouth, the next you're laughing. I would greatly recommend this book, or any book with her name on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars So You thought Women Were Inferior to Men? Think Again., 11 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A small but excellent book for younger readers, a 'must read' I think for any girl (or boy) who has been told women are not the equal of men. Though only a few of the women who ruled countries, led armies and the like are listed here, it makes for a good introduction to the subject, an aspect of history so often overlooked. We now know for example that many Viking warriors were women, and the graves of women buried with weapons, some bearing battle injuries, have been found in the east. Anything that blows away the cobwebs of false history and shows girls they are not second-rate is a good thing, and this little volume is a nice start. I'd recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars TERRY GOODKIND HAS LEFT THE WORLD OF MAGIC SWORDS FOR MODERN EVIL DEEDS, 1 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enjoyed it. Something very unlike Terry's previous work, but a good, gripping tale with surprising twists, and a strong female character who can take pretty good care of herself. Some interesting points raised regarding cyber crime that will make you ponder just how 'safe' our modern world really is.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is still a great deal Terry could do, 30 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So the epic Sword of Truth comes to a close. Or does it? Hopefully we may get more later, perhaps the birth of a child for Richard and Kahlan, or Nathan and Nicci's adventures together, even going back before Wizard's First Rule to Alric Rahl or the creation of the Mord-Sith. There is still a great deal Terry could do, and I hope he does.

I enjoyed Warheart, the tying-up of loose ends was quite clever, explaining everything that has gone on since the first book. Didn't see that coming. Very sad at a death, if you've read it I'm sure you can guess who, but it fitted in with the person's attitudes. Still sad. Yes, I cried. If you've enjoyed the SOT I'm sure you will also enjoy this ultimate story, though it will still leave you wanting more.

Please give us more Terry! I shall keep my fingers crossed.

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't come better than this, 7 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mage Winds (Kindle Edition)
Very good book, interesting characters and a gripping story line. I really like the world of Valdemar, where there is total freedom for all faiths and customs as well as all forms of sexuality. The strong female characters, Elspeth and Kerowyn for example, are really first rate, fighting alongside the men as equals, and the bad characters are, well, about as bad as they get. I'd highly recommend Mercedes Lackey to anyone with an interest in fantasy writing.
