    1. I wasn't sure what to think of this at first, since it began with a reconstruction of the events of Boudicca's last battle which read like fiction. However, I appreciated that in the first chapter the author was very upfront about the sources used (and the lack of sources), and about the problem of tainted sources. The analysis of how accurate the information was helped me believe in Trow's good faith in doing this research. The reliance on racial stereotypes/archetypes made me wince a bit, beca [...]


    2. M.J.Trow's 'Boudicca-The Warrior Queen' published 2003 is the second book that I have read by this author, having previously given four stars for his 'Cnut;Emperor of the North.'Mr Trow is a historian and a history teacher, well I only wish I had a history teacher of his perspicacity when I was a wee smaik.In similar vein to his Cnut, the author excavates every fragmentary layer of our present understanding of this Queen of the Iceni, a fossicker through the dark distant mists. Boudicca's place [...]


    3. I wish an alternate universe could have opened in Boudiccas' final battle against the Romans. How different would our British/North American planet be if she had won? The possibilities, for better or worse, are endless. It makes me want to read about more as the Celts as a people. Were they the Klingons they are often made out to be? Were women and men really on equal footing? Fascinating stuff.


    4. I think the authors know their stuff but they probably need a good editor to straighten out the chronology of their story. Also, the book needs photographs and many more maps showing the areas written about. There could be more background on the various Celtic tribes, too.


    5. It really should have been titled "How The Romans Attacked and Conquered Britain - Guest starring Boudicca". Plenty of historical information and analysis But almost none of it was actually ON the alleged subject of the book.


    6. Not much about the womanLots of information about the Romans and ancient Britain, but hardly any content about Iacocca, which was really disappointing! Glad it was a free book.


    7. Fascinating. I watched a history channel show on how she fought the Romans, but I needed to know more. Women and men on equal ground, both respected for their roles whatever they might be.
