The View from the Ground

The View from the Ground - Martha Gellhorn Read her. Seriously. Gripping, intelligent articles. She covers some of the worst of the 20th century, from the fall of Czechoslovakia to the Eichmann and McCarthy trials to Vietnam, sparing none of the ugliness but nevertheless managing to find something brave and hopeful and human in the horror. She's incredibly brave and badass, and, though she dispatches with the objectivity thing pretty freely, only some of her impressions come across as dated. Most still feel incredibly relevant.
