“I followed the war wherever I could reach it.” From the Spanish Civil War to Panama, Martha Gellhorn covered most major conflicts in her 60-year career as a wartime correspondent. She is also the only known woman to have landed as a part of the invasion of Normandy on 6 June 1944, but not because of an official assignment but her desire to cover war—and maybe to get back at her husband, Ernest Hemingway, for stealing her job. Discover how her marriage and work intertwined in World War II to give her the distinction of being the only woman among 150,000 men on D-Day during this riveting lecture.
