Description

By Virginia Cowles & Christina Lamb

Paperback 

This sensational 1941 memoir of life on wartime Europe's frontline by a trailblazing female reporter is an 'unforgettable' (The Times) rediscovered classic, introduced by Christina Lamb. Paris as it fell to the Nazis. London on the first day of the Blitz. Berlin the day Germany invaded Poland. Madrid in the Spanish Civil War. Prague during the Munich crisis. Lapland as the Russians attacked. Moscow betrayed by the Germans.

Virginia Cowles has seen it all. As a pioneering female correspondent, she reported from the frontline of 1930s Europe into WWII always in the right place at the right time.

Flinging off her heels under shellfire; meeting Hitler ('an inconspicuous little man'); gossiping with Churchill by his goldfish pond; dancing in the bomb-blasted Ritz. Introduced by Christina Lamb, Cowles' incredible dispatches make you an eyewitness to the twentieth century as you have never experienced it before.

A marvel. Her ability to capture anecdotes and dialogue that offer surprising insights into historic personages and events is a frequent source of wonder. It was difficult for me not to drive my family crazy wanting to read them quotes.

The intrepid Virginia Cowles was in the right places at the right times and connected to the right people. What a life she led!
