A fierce war is raging in Syria. A unit of fearless female fighters are battling the world’s most brutal enemy, ISIS. And they’re winning. Deep within Kurdish Syria, the YPJ, made up of local women, are fighting the barbaric terrorist movement. Now, six months after she first met them, Tara Brown returns to the war zone to see firsthand just how these extraordinary female fighters are winning the war.
They are brave women who have lost family and friends, but won’t let anything weaken their resolve to defeat ISIS.
