The face of war by Martha Gellhorn( Book )

70 editions published between 1959 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martha Gellhorn was a war correspondent for nearly fifty years. From the Spanish Civil War in 1937 through the wars in Central America in the mid-eighties, her reports reflected her feelings for people no matter what their political ideologies, and the openness and vulnerability of her conscience. "I wrote very fast, as I had to," she says, "afraid that I would forget the exact sound, smell, words, gestures, which were special to this moment and this place." Whether in Java, Finland, the Middle East, or Vietnam, she used the same approach

In 1938, before the Munich pact, Gellhorn visited Prague and witnessed its transformation from a proud democracy preparing to battle Hitler to a country occupied by the German army. Born out of this experience, her novel follows a journalist who returns to Prague after its annexation and finds her efforts to obtain help for the refugees and to convey the shocking state of the country both frustrating and futile. A convincing account of a people under the brutal oppression of the Gestapo, and Gellhorn's most powerful work of fiction

Martha was the youngest of sixteen, handpicked reporters who filed accurate, confidential reports on the human stories behind the statistics of the Depression directly to Roosevelt's White House. From these pages, we understand the real cost of sudden destitution on a vast scale. We taste the dust in the mouth, smell the disease and feel the hopelessness and the despair. And here, too, we can hear the earliest cadences of a writer who went on to become, arguably, the greatest female war reporter of the 20th century

Point of no return by Martha Gellhorn( Book )

16 editions published between 1948 and 2016 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1948, this powerful novel follows a U.S. Army infantry battalion in Europe through the last months of the Second World War - through the Battle of the Bulge, the Allied sweep across Germany, and the discovery of the Nazi death camps. Jacob Levy, a young soldier from St. Louis, has never given much thought to politics, world affairs, or his own Jewish heritage, but after the liberation of Dachau, he confronts the horror of the Holocaust and takes his own violent revenge. Jolted into a new understanding of humanity's connectedness, he comes to terms with his own Jewish identity and grapples with questions of individual moral responsibility that are still contemporary fifty years later. In her afterword, Martha Gellhorn traces the roots of the novel in her own experience as a war correspondent who first heard of the Nazi concentration camps during the Spanish Civil War and herself got to Dachau a week after American soldiers discovered the camp at the end of a village street

Vier Paare, vier Novellen, ein Versprechen: In guten wie in schlechten Tagen, In Reichtum und Armut, In Gesundheit und Krankheit, Bis der Tod uns scheide. Martha Gellhorn lotet in vier ironisch eleganten, zutiefst berührenden Novellen Varianten von Paarbeziehungen aus. Eine junge Amerikanerin in Italien beobachtet an ihrem hochblütigen Prinzen späte Anzeichen von Selbständigkeit, die Gesellschaftslöwin treibt ihre lethargischen Männer zu immer neuen karrieristischen Höhenflügen, die ewig Kranke tyrannisiert Umwelt und Ehemann, und der rastlose Kriegsphotograph gibt auch im Tod das Geheimnis seiner grossen Liebe nicht preis. "Stellen Sie sich Dorothy Parker in Gestalt Katharine Hepburns vor, dann sehen Sie Martha Gellhorn vor sich: eine Frau, die vor keinem Kriegsgebiet, keiner Kultur und keinem männlichen Ego zurückschreckte." Stacy Schiff MARTHA GELLHORN wurde am 8. November 1908 in St. Louis geboren. Sie studierte in Bryn Mawr, ging 1930 nach Paris. 1937 folgte sie Ernest Hemingway in den Spanischen Bürgerkrieg. Bis zum Ende des Kalten Krieges war sie bei jedem wichtigen internationalen Konflikt an vorderster Front dabei, um als Kriegsreporterin darüber zu berichten. Martha Gellhorn starb auf eigenen Wunsch am 16. Februar 1998 im Alter von 90 Jahren in London. Seit ein paar Jahren haben wir es uns zur Aufgabe gemacht, Ausgewählte Werke Martha Gellhorns neu oder erstmals auf Deutsch vorzulegen. MIRIAM MANDELKOW, 1963 in Amsterdam geboren, arbeitet als Lektorin und Übersetzerin. Sie lebt in Hamburg und in Arkadien, Griechenland.
