Known as the greatest female war correspondent of the 20th century, Martha Gellhorn’s reporting took her from the Great Depression, through the Spanish Civil War and World War II to the Vietnam War. Along the way, she covered other conflicts, wrote novels, and ended up married to Hemingway, which led to deliberately crashing a car into a tree.
