The War Queens

The War Queens

Coming soon: The incredible stories of history’s greatest female battlefield leaders—from Egypt’s Cleopatra to Russia’s Catherine the Great, from Israel’s Golda Meir to Britain’s Margaret Thatcher. The daunting thresholds these exceptional women had to cross―from the stifling battlefields of ancient Egypt to the frigid waters off the Falkland Islands—and the clever, sometimes violent ways in which they smashed obstacles in their paths―are evoked in vivid detail.

Father-daughter duo Jonathan W. Jordan and Emily Anne Jordan examine the ingenious wartime tactics of some of history’s most powerful female leaders, the brilliant methods and maneuvers “history’s killer queens” used to defend themselves and their people from enemy forces.

Learn about the extraordinary power of women in history who walked through war’s kiln and emerged from the other side―some burnished to greatness, others burned to cinders. All of them, legends.

“In The War Queens, a father-daughter duo charges into combat . . . romping [their] way through ‘history’s killer queens’ . . . to make these stories come rousingly to life.” —The Wall Street Journal praising the Jordans’ book, The War Queens
