Description - Martha Gellhorn by Caroline Moorehead
Martha Gellhorn was a fearless reporter and her despatches from the front made her a legend, yet her private life was often messy and volcanic. Her determination to be a war correspondent - and her conspicuous success - contributed to the breakdown of her already stormy marriage to Ernest Hemingway. Gellhorn's journalism tracks many of the flashpoints of the twentieth century; as a young woman she witnessed the suffering of the American Depression and risked her life in the Spanish Civil War, whilst producing some of her finest writing. All her life, Martha's battles were fought against injustice, and she always captured the human story.
