Women Warriors

Price: 20.00 GBP
After her beloved husband was forced to fight for William II, Mrs Christian ‘Kit’ Welsh was not going to let her happy home be torn apart by war. Instead, she donned her husband’s clothes and joined the Duke of Marlborough’s Dragoons. Under the name of Christopher Welsh, she began her pursuit of her ‘brother’ Richard, which took her across Europe, onto the battlefield throughout the Nine Years War and the War of the Spanish Succession, and through an exploration of her own identity as a woman, wife, mother and soldier.
