              Each of them had different motives for choosing so dangerous a career - Martha Gellhorn came to war journalism to save the world, Virginia Cowles wanted to see the world, Lee Miller wanted, arguably, to save herself. Sigrid Schulz, Clare Hollingworth and Helen Kirkpatrick, report...ing for daily newspapers, were required to write about the war in a more briskly factual style. But they were no less determined to uncover the truth. Barred from official briefings, forced to dodge around the Public Relations Officers who controlled the media's movements, all six set up their own informal contacts with soldiers, found pockets of war action and snapshots of human interest which gave a different colour and often a different heartbeat to their stories. Drawing on their own writings as well as on contemporary memoirs, Judith Mackrell reveals what drew these women towards war and seamlessly weaves their stories into the larger narrative of the war, with all its horrors, horrors that would haunt them until the end of their lives.

              A gripping group portrait of six revolutionary women writers during World War II I am going to Spain with the boys, Martha Gellhorn wrote. I don't know who the boys are but I am going with them. On the front lines of the Second World War, the lives of six remarkable women intertw...ined: Lee Miller, the Vogue cover model and photographer who lived in Paris as Man Ray's lover before becoming a war correspondent for the magazine; Martha Gellhorn, the third wife of Ernest Hemingway and a novelist in her own right; Sigrid Schultz, an indisputably brave journalist who withstood surveillance, interrogation, and death threats in order to publish the truth from Berlin; Virginia Cowles, whose career as a 'society girl columnist' turned combat reporter began with an exclusive interview with Mussolini; Clare Hollingworth, who had almost no professional experience when she became the first correspondent to report the outbreak of World War II; and Helen Kirkpatrick, a reporter so admired by the military that at the order of General Eisenhower she was the first woman to report from an Allied war zone with equal privileges to men. The Correspondents paints a vivid, intimate, and nuanced portrait of these pioneering women, from chasing down sources to conducting clandestine love affairs. With her riveting and meticulous history, Judith Mackrell reconsiders the narrative of the war from a new perspective.
