Six Extraordinary Women Writing from the Front Line
Journalist and writer Judith Mackrell returns to Guildford to tell the story of how six bold and resolute women, including Martha Gellhorn, Lee Miller and Britain’s Clare Hollingworth, became front-line war correspondents during WWII. Their motives varied from wanting to save the world to wanting to see the world, and even wanting to save themselves, but they remained determined to uncover the truth. Barred from official briefings they set up their own informal contacts with soldiers and presented articles with human interest giving a different colour, and heartbeat, to their stories. Their writings changed the face of war reporting for ever.
