Performed by:

Martha Gellhorn (1908-1998) was a war correspondent for nearly 50 years. From the Spanish Civil War in 1937 through the wars in Central America in the mid-'80s, her candid reports reflected her feelings for people no matter what their political ideologies, and the openness and vulnerability of her conscience. 'I wrote very fast, as I had to,' she says, 'afraid that I would forget the exact sound, smell, words, gestures, which were special to this moment and this place.' Whether in Java, Finland, the Middle East, or Vietnam, she used the same vigorous approach. Collected here together for the first time, The Face of War is what The New York Times called 'a brilliant anti-war book.'
