Martha Gellhorn (1908 – 1998) was a war correspondent who covered nearly every major global conflict in the course of her 60-year career, from the Spanish Civil War to Vietnam to the Central American wars of the 1980s. This selection of quotes by Martha Gellhorn demonstrate her courage and wit in the face of adversity.
Also a prolific novelist and travel writer, she was briefly married to Ernest Hemingway, but famously said that didn’t want to be a “footnote” to his life. Bold and fearless, Gellhorn’s sober view of humanity comes through in all of her reporting.
