Today marks a somber day in literary history: the passing of Martha Gellhorn, a pioneering war correspondent and journalist. Gellhorn was one of the first female war reporters, and her work covered the Spanish Civil War, World War II, and the Vietnam War. Her writing was marked by a fierce commitment to truth-telling and a deep empathy for the people she wrote about. She was also a novelist, essayist, and short story writer. Her work has inspired generations of writers and journalists, and her legacy will live on.
