    Myths of Women Warrior Societies

    I was wondering if any other cultures had myths of amazon-like warrior societies like the Greeks. It seems odd that only they would have a myth like that. I've heard they were likely inspired by women warriors among the Scythiens. but other cultures had women warriors.

    Warrior bishops and priests

    I haven't found much information on the internet related with warrior bishops and priests in Middle Ages. Was it common to see churchmen commanding or fighting in battles? How much influence did they have on the military area? Do you know any interesting real case?

    Was El Cid that great of a general and warrior?

    He's pretty much a legend in broadly speaking Spanish military history circles but was he that great? What was his greatest moment/campaign? Did he lead his men into battle in a heroic tradition, what made him so feared? All questions I'd be interested in hearing.

    Do individual warrior cultures such as barbarians lack common sense teamwork tactics?

    An interesting post I found online. Individual Fighter Warrior Culture and Team Work by LustyVenusianJuuza on DeviantArt Although the writer focuses on criminal activities and civilian violence, he does have a point. I mean if drunkards in a bar are able to work together in such coordination...

    The art of the Viking warrior.

    It is my opinion (if I'm given leave to have on of these), that passages in the Edda referring to Fenrir. Are a coded message for the warrior life. The Edda gives a list of elements to bind the wolf. Now common opinion would have it that this is the binding of the mythical demon by series of...

    Marcellus' skill as a warrior

    I know he had won the spolia opima, but what else do we know about his skill at arms? Would he frequently lead charges, and fight in the frontlines so to speak? And how does his own personal skill at fighting compare to other Generals of Antiquity who fought in 'the heroic fashion'?

    Famous Byzantine Warriors

    Not sure if this has been talked about, but I am wondering if there have been any famous Byzantine warriors; bonus points if not an emperor. It seems like whenever I read or hear about Byzantine, most of times they "defeated" their enemies through bribery and wits - which are very good tactics...
