Some of the struggles that women had to endure to achieve professional recognition in the public sphere are examined, and also the participation of European queens in the war effort and their personifications as living symbols of nationalism for their nations.

The contributions to the war efforts of Queen Mary of Great Britain (1867-1953), Czarina Alexandra of Russia (1872-1918), and Queen Marie of Romania (1875-1938) are discussed. In addition, there are intriguing stories of women spies that promise to be page turners!
