Judith Mackrell - Going With The Boys

Judith Mackrell - Going With The Boys

The story of how six bold and resolute women became front-line war correspondents during the Second World War.

Barred from official briefings, all six set up their own informal contacts with soldiers, found pockets of war action and snapshots of human interest which gave a different colour and often a different heartbeat to their stories, changing the face of war reporting for ever. Drawing on their own writings, as well as contemporary memoirs, Judith Mackrell reveals what motivated these women, weaving their stories into a larger narrative of horrors that would haunt them until the end of their lives.

Judith Mackrell’s biography Lydia Lopokova, Bloomsbury Ballerina, was shortlisted for the Costa Biography Award. Her group biography Flappers was critically acclaimed and The Unfinished Palazzo, published in 2017, was an international bestseller.
