Introducing the Master List of Historical Women in Combat

Which is goddamn infuriating, since women have been doing that for all of recorded history. So I decided to start up a (non-comprehensive) list of women in combat to try and help y’all win arguments. You can find it here.

And as for the actual email that set all this off:
