Nancy Cladwell Sorel, “The Women Who Wrote the War”¬†
English | ISBN: 1559704934 | 1999 | EPUB | 464 pages | 5 MB

 

“World War II produced a huge cast of characters. War correspondents were a small but essential part of the picture, and women correspondents but a fraction of the whole. Yet the heroic role played by the women who volunteeered for combat-zone duty has never been given its due. Their ranks included Margaret Bourke-White, Martha Gellhorn, Lee Miller, Janet Flanner, and hundreds of others. The Women Who Wrote the War relates not only what they reported but also the sides of their lives they did not report. In a riveting and seamless narrative, Nancy Sorel weaves together the lives and times of these women and gives them not only the dignity they deserve but their rightful place in this century’s history. Their stories form a crucial link in the long chain of women’s struggle for equality.”
