The first biography of the redoubtable woman war reporter.
Renowned as a war correspondent, Gelhorn, who died in London in 1998 just short of her ninetieth birthday, was also a novelist, a travel writer of great distinction and a passionate campaigner against fascism and the "oppressive power" of her native country, the United States.
A handsome woman who never lost her allure, Gelhorn charmed men all her life. She married (and divorced) three of them, including Ernest Hemingway, and enjoyed affairs with many others, including an ageing HG Wells.
