The Face of War

The Face of War is by Martha Gellhorn. The famous war correspondent collects a selection of her articles that range from the Spanish War of the 1930s to the wars in Central America in the 1980s. It is interesting to see her hawkish attitude towards Hitler and the Axis powers during WWII become increasingly more anti-war as time goes on. A fascinating look at the causes and consequences of war.
