Reviews

Praise for Martha Gellhorn and The Face of War

"One of the most fearless, determined and talented journalists ever to have covered wars."--Wall Street Journal

"[Gellhorn was] a heroine to generations of young women correspondents for her fight to get equal treatment and a place on the front lines with male colleagues."--New York Times

"Gellhorn felt her duty as a journalist was to bear witness . . . She told stories not of generals and politicians, but of powerless people--the victims of war."--NPR

"There is a hard, shining, almost cruel honesty to Gellhorn's work that brings back shellshocked Barcelona, Helsinki, Canton and Bastogne--the prelude and crashing symphony of World War II--with almost unbearable vividness."--Guardian (UK)
