Format: Paperback
Gen Douglas MacArthur quoted a popular British song of World War I with "Old Soldiers Never Die; they only fade away" during his change of command speech in 1951. That quote very aptly describes any noble warrior. Rosalind Miles and Robin Cross do female warriors a great service by keeping their stories alive for a new generation in "Hell Hath no Fury: True Stories of Women at War from Antiquity to Iraq."

This book is an encyclopedic reference of famous stateswomen, and female leaders who stand out in the annals of history. The book is composed of short essays, each of which provides a footnoted reference to point readers to additional information for each major topic.

The book begins by highlighting female heads of state and generals. These chapters offer readers a very balanced look across diverse cultures, from Boudicca, who fought against the Romans; to Nusayba bint Ka'b, who fought at the side of the prophet Muhammad. It also includes glimpses of modern women such as Margaret Thatcher and Condoleezza Rice. The leaders in this chapter come from Africa, Russia, China, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas, and they range in time from B.C. through today.

The chapter "Creature Comforts" examines the culture of the "Camp Followers", who have existed since antiquity, serving as cooks and launders among other things. These willing women are starkly contrasted to the plight of "Comfort Women", who were forced into unspeakable acts. The chapter is balanced with positive organizations such as the United Services Organization and the Red Cross.
