Summary"As demonstrated by the example of the twelve heroines, war is also the business of women, who make brave decisions, perform daring actions, and take upon themselves dangerous tasks that many a male hero would not consider a disgrace at all. War is waged no only on the battlefield; war is also the perilous everyday reality, the struggle with pain and fear, and dramatic responsibility for the children and household. It is also the necessity to provide for the daily existence; it is taking the most difficult decisions and supporting the husbands, fathers, and sons."
