Martha Gellhorn: The war writer in the field and in the text

Kate McLoughlin

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first full-length critical study of Martha Gelhorn's second World War writings
  • Contributes a methodology for understanding war representation - the idea of positioning in the field and text
  • Offers new ideas about the status of the glamorous woman reporter in the war zone
  • Drawing on unpublished letters, close attention is given to Gellhorn's rivalry with Ernest Hemingway (the two were married from 1940 to 1945) over reaching the Normandy beaches on D-Day
