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.

approached her journalism. This is what she said about Adolf Eichmann: "Adolf Eichmann is the most dire warning to us all. He is a warning to guard our souls; to refuse utterly and forever to allegiance without question, to obey orders silently, to scream slogans. He is a warning that the private conscience is the last and only protection of the civilised world."
She cut through the crap and got to the core of the issue, and was unflinching in what she said. She thought that the American invasion of Vietnam was wrong, and said so. America banned her from entering Vietnam as a result. Gellhorn was a compelling writer, and wrote in a beautiful clear prose. I feel sure you will love her journalism.
