Martha Gellhorn

4 Extra Debut. Popbitch editor Camilla Wright chooses Martha Gellhorn, who wrote at length about the Spanish Civil War, the Second World War and Vietnam. From January 2006.

A typical story in Popbitch is usually about 90 words. This probably explains why its editor Camilla Wright has chosen Martha Gellhorn as her Great Life. Gellhorn wrote at length about the Spanish Civil War, the Second World War and Vietnam. Biographer Caroline Moorhead joins presenter Matthew Parris to dissect and debate a brilliant and complicated life.
