This book chapter discusses the rewiting of the memoires of Regula Engel (1761-1883), a women from Switzerland who followed her husband, a soldier in the French Revvolutionary and Napoleonic army,  to war and wrote in the 1820s her memoires about her experiences to earn  money. Her memoires were republished several times and rewritten by the editor in this process. The author of the book chapter, the German historian Claudia Ulbrich, argues that this rewriting reflects the changing contemporary perception of female "amazones."
