Where the Action Was: Women War Correspondents in World War II

Penny Colman, Author, Penny Coleman, Author Crown Publishers $17.95 (128p) ISBN 978-0-517-80075-1

Just in time for Women's History Month, three titles sing the praises of outstanding women and girls. In Where the Action Was: Women War Correspondents in World War II, Penny Colman chronicles the contributions of the women who worked the front lines and, in so doing, laid a path for other female journalists. Margaret Bourke-White was ""the only foreign photographer in the Soviet Union"" when the Nazis attacked Moscow; Lee Miller top-fashion-model-turned-Vogue-photographer captured on film one of the first napalm explosions. Maps, newspaper headlines and more than 70 photographs supplement this comprehensive volume. (Feb.)
