About the Author
MARTHA GELLHORN (1908-98) was born in St Louis, Missouri. In 1930, she talked her way into a free passage to Europe and arrived in Paris with seventy-five dollars in her pocket and the conviction that she could earn a living as a foreign correspondent. She returned to the United States in 1934 and two years later published her acclaimed The Trouble I've Seen. It was at this time that she met Ernest Hemingway, whom she married.
In 1937 she returned to Europe as a war correspondent, and for the first nine years she reported on the wars in Spain, Finland, China and Java and finally from Europe during the Second World War. After 1946 she continued to report on whatever engaged her interest and concern, from Vietnam to the Middle East and the wars in Central America.
As well as her journalism, Martha Gellhorn was the author of novels, collections of stories, novellas, works of non-fiction and a play.

A brilliant read, really well written by someone who knows her stuff. I'd love to know what she'd have made of the Iraqui war and the mess going on in Afghanistan.
Really should be studied in schools and universities.
through the down to earth language of war correspondent Martha Gelhorn. the breadth and depth of her experience in writing about conflict is staggering.
as the line on the book says, all world leaders should be made to read this book before making war..
