Female war correspondents in World War II

There were many females who headed out to the front lines in World War II. Often working as war correspondents, these journalists had to wage a battle of their own. There was a ban on women in battle and they had to fight just to be able to cover the war. They were called the D-Day Dames and the BBC’s Chief International Correspondent, Lyse Doucet, shares their stories. Photo Courtesy of Flickr/Biblioarchives
