This collective biography shines light on the groundbreaking true stories of "six women writers on the front lines of World War II." Martha Gellhorn, who kickstarted her writing career during the Spanish Civil War, became an important wartime correspondent. Lee Miller, Vogue-writer-turned-war-photographer, took revolutionary pictures during the Second World War. Sigrid Schultz became the first female foreign bureau chief, while Helen Kirkpatrick was the first woman to earn war credentials because of her extraordinary work. Clare Hollingworth was the first reporter to break the story of the outbreak of World War II. Virginia Cowles's article on the Spanish Civil War launched her career after Lloyd George discovered her incredible writing. Perfect for feminists, writers, and history buffs, this book presents a gripping account of six brave journalists who shattered the glass ceiling.
