Editorial Reviews

This five-program series pays tribute to history's most charismatic women warriors. These action-packed episodes shot on location in France, Ireland, Britain, China, and North America will combine a heady mix of historical sleuthing and provocative reconstruction. Each episode of Warrior Women investigates the intimate, gritty details of the life and times of these great true-life women warriors, and celebrates the popular mythology that surrounds them. Queen Boudica In 62 BC, most of England was under the thumb of the Romans. Queen Boudica was married to King Prasutagus of the semi-autonomous Iceni tribe in the east. When the king died, he bequeathed half his kingdom to his young wife and her two daughters, and half to Emperor Nero to appease Rome. Thinking they could intimidate the young woman into complete submission, the Romans promptly flogged Queen Boudica, tortured her daughters and stole her lands. Boudica took up the sword, rallied her Iceni warriors and went on a rampage. The Real Mulan 200 years ago a young woman brought the greatest empire in Asia to its knees. She was a master of kung fu and held the respect of 60,000 warriors who followed her unquestioningly into battle. Their enemy was the brutal and corrupt Qing dynasty a dynasty they were determined to overthrow. The fate of China was in one woman's hands. Her name was Wang Cong'er. Is she the real Mulan? Joan of Arc Convinced by the voices of saints to step forth and serve her deposed king, Joan of Arc became an unlikely war hero. With 10,000 beaten men and very long odds against the advancing English army, she scored a miraculous string of victories over the rather surprised English battalions by leading the charge into their front lines. She even returned the throne to Charles VII, but it all went horribly wrong when she was finally captured, tried for witchcraft and heresy, and burned at the stake. Lozen: Apache Warrior As a young girl, Lozen decided that tidying up the tent and cooking buffalo stew wasn't for her, and she was in constant trouble for beating up her brother, and she was in constant trouble for beating up her brother, the mighty Apache warrior Victorio. One day she discovered her special powers, which allowed her to detect the direction of the enemy. Equipped with this metaphysical radar and a healthy thirst for revenge, she became priestess, warrior, and Victorio's right hand tactician. Grace O'Malley, Pirate Queen The daughter of Irish pirate chieftain 'Black Oak' O'Malley, the girl Grace was dead set on a life of glory at sea with her father. In a fit of defiance against her mother's ideal of the 'quiet life of a lady', she shaved her head and was forever teased by her siblings with the nickname 'Bald O'Malley'. She got a new hairdo, mastered the sail and sword, and with a merry band of 200 mates, terrorized the shipping lanes of the coastal waters into her submission.

This documentary is from Discovery Channel Europe. Never shown in the US this is in fact a wonderful 5 part series on famous women warriors - the Icini warrior queen Boudica, a real Mulan Wang Cong'er, Joan of Arc, the Apache Lorenze, and Irish patriot and pirate Grace O'Malley. Narrated by none other the Warrior Princess herself, Lucy Lawless, the documentary is well researched and has great production values. The reenachments are well done and there are plenty of demonstrations of ancient weapons and fighting tactics. The documentary is both entertaining and educational for both adults and students. I have no idea why this series made in 2007 never was shown in the US but it certainly deserves a wider audience.

This series is awesome. You can preview it on youtube: type in Warrior Women Budica or Mulan. These are historical documentaries about women warriors. Budica's story mentions that her 2 daughters were raped. It did not show it. There are many battle scenes (this is about war). I do not see a recommended age listed, so I do not understand the other comment. However, war films are usually for adults. I think for Americans a typical 13 year old could watch this, benefit from the information, and understand it.

Each title alone sells for $22 which is normal for DVDs and cheap for documentaries. The Joan of Arc is more expensive is purchased alone $39 maybe it is rare or more in demand. These are from Europe, so this is not a bad deal for 5 movies. Buying it as a set, you save a lot of money.

Format: DVD
Great series, every one should see it as an educational series to make men and women realize women have a very diferent history then most people think and women are capable of being fine warriors.
I would love to own it, BUT, and that's a big BUT, it is priced way to high.
Come on Amazon ! , give us a break !
Come down on the price and I would buy, $ 20.00 or less.
I give this a two star because no show with only 3 discs is worth over $ 200.00 !
If the producers want to receive a five star from shoppers on amazon , then they can price their work at a more normal price. !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Questionable stereotypes and sexual references. Very disappointed. Interesting information and well made video but not appropriate for the age listed.
