Outpost: 6 Warrior Women and the Fiction They Inspired

What do an escaped slave in Jamaica, an ex-prostitute in southern China and an Apache prophetess have in common? They rose from humble origins to become some of the most remarkable warrior women in history.

It’s a busy time for guest posts. On this occasion, Lauralee over at History From a Woman’s Perspective has kindly played host. Following on my last post about Soviet women combat pilots, I expanded my scope to look at warrior women through history. In particular, I wanted to focus on women from humble origins. Not surprisingly, their stories have caught the attention of other writers, so I also got to highlight the stories and novels that these women inspired. A bookish and historical post in one!

Outpost: Unsung Heroes of Women’s History Month

I was invited to write a guest post for P.K. Adams’s history blog to help celebrate unsung women heroes for Women’s History Month.

In the course of researching my novel, I came across many stories of women who fought for the Soviet Union. Since my story focuses on fighter pilots, I was especially interested in those who flew in combat. Other historical fiction writing highlights the night bomber crews, the famous “Night Witches.” For my post, I thought it would be good to highlight three other women pilots who deserve more recognition: one was an air ambulance pilot celebrated on propaganda posters; one flew ground attack planes and survived a German death camp only to be persecuted by the Soviets after the war; and one commanded a regiment of male pilots and has a monument to her in Moscow.

Many thanks to P.K. Adams for giving me this opportunity at writing this guest post, or “outpost,” as I’d like to call it, to avoid confusing with guest posts on my own blog 😊. Don’t @ me!
