'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'
The Times
Outstanding . . . Percy's text is hard-hitting, and evidence-based
Wavell Reviews
Fascinating . . . in evidencing women's long military service, Percy combats . . . the final exclusion - from the historial record
BBC History Magazine
Most people have heard of Boudicca and Joan of Arc. But as this brilliant, perspective-shattering book shows, the contributions of myriad other women who have fought on the frontlines of conflict over the past 2,000 years have routinely been suppressed
Magnificently researched, Forgotten Warriors opens up and heightens intellectual landscapes . . . it could not be more timely
The Monthly Magazine
Ambitious, wide-ranging and learned
Truly impressive and rigorously researched, this is a book that should be included in all libraries
New York Journal of Books
Lively and vivid
Wall Street Journal
