Fights Like a Girl

In Fights Like a Girl, veteran Pete Mecca compiles the personal stories of female warriors of all branches, ranks, and wars through a series of compelling interviews and stories from across time. Beyond amassing the first-person recollections of modern veterans, Mecca also details a rich history of female fighters of the past, from pirates to samurai, generalissimos, ancient mariners, and sailors donning in male uniforms. Fights Like a Girl is an ode to women of all races, creeds, and colors who have taken up the sword to protect their countries, their honor, and their children.
