Martha Gellhorn, The Only Woman Who Landed in Normandy on D-Day

Martha Gellhorn

On the eve of the Normandy landings in June 1944, there were over a thousand war correspondents all over Europe reporting back to the millions of British and Americans back home. A handful of these journalists and photographers were also women. Unfortunately, the government had prohibited women from going to the front lines, so while these women correspondents could cover stories from the war zone, they could not go in with the troops.

Understandably, many female war correspondents were not happy with the ban.
