    English Summary/英文概要: Goddard, say her friends and family, would have hated being singled out for her gender: she was as strong, as capable and brave as any male in uniform. She was not just a soldier on equal footing with her fellow troops; she was a leader in one of the most dangerous positions in the armed forces, a Forward Observation Officer with the artillery unit.

    But she was the most unlikely of soldiers. She was born to educators who described themselves as left-wing hippies and devoted their careers to building education systems in oppressed and war-torn countries. Tim and Sally Goddard lived and breathed a “books, not bombs” philosophy that took them everywhere from Papua New Guinea to Canada’s native reserves to Kosovo. Tim Goddard, now Dean of Education at the University of Prince Edward Island, continually challenged his daughter on her choices, both when she was a student at Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario, and, via regular phone calls and emails, while she served in the sweltering heat of Afghanistan. Nichola Goddard amongst the tribespeople of Papua New Guinea, 1985Whether or not he believed in the rightness of her chosen task, what mattered most to him was that Nichola live an examined life.
