Is being "the first female soldier to kill in combat" really something to be proud of?

It was him or me, says the first female soldier to kill in combat who shot Taliban SEVEN times


by Katherine Faulkner, Mail on Sunday, 4 December 2011

 

 

A female [British] Army medic has told of the dramatic moment she gunned down a Taliban fighter after being caught in an ambush, saying: ‘It was him or me.’  [...]

Officially, female soldiers in the Army are not allowed to fight on the front line in battle. But Miss [Chantelle] Taylor is one of many women who have served in Afghanistan and Iraq as medics, drivers and artillery support troops. [...]

Describing her first and only ‘kill’ in a book about her experiences in Afghanistan, Miss Taylor said the attack happened as a patrol was ambushed by 20 heavily-armed insurgents in the Taliban stronghold of Marjah, Helmand, in July 2008.

The dramatic account appears in Miss Taylor’s book Bad Company: A Woman Face To Face With The Taliban, which is being serialised in the Mail on Sunday.
