Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "World War II is a story without end that can be told from countless perspectives, and Sorel, a contributor to Esquire and the Atlantic, has chosen one that is as fascinating as it is overlooked: the unique vantage point of women war correspondents. Their battle began at home, where they had to convince skeptical male editors of their mettle, and it continued on the battlefield. Treated either dismissively or overprotectively, they were also the objects of much sexual and romantic desire, but these unconventional and courageous women persevered, suffering all the hardships and horrors of war in Europe and the Pacific, and striving to tell the truth about what they witnessed. Sorel, who never fails to relish a telling anecdote, deftly weaves together more than a dozen profiles of such trailblazers as Sigrid Schultz, Berlin bureau chief for the Chicago Tribune; photographer Margaret Bourke-White; Martha Gellhorn; Virginia Cowles; Sonia Tomara; Lee Miller; and Dickey Chapelle, who was later killed in combat in Vietnam. By insightfully presenting both the private and professional sides of her subjects' lives, Sorel has written a many-faceted and refulgent chapter in the history of women, war, and journalism. --Donna Seaman"
