Summary In 1965, Wisconsin native Georgette "Dickey" Chapelle became the first female American war correspondent to be killed in action. Now, "Dickey Chapelle Under Fire" shares her remarkable story and offers readers the chance to experience her captivating photography. An award-winning war correspondent, Dickey Chapelle broke down gender barriers for future female journalists. She embedded herself with military units on front lines around the globe, including Iwo Jima and Okinawa, the Dominican Republic, Lebanon, Cuba, and Vietnam. For twenty-five years, her photographs graced the pages of National Geographic, the National Observer, Life, and many others. Dickey was willing to go as far as the stories would take her. Her tenacity, courage, and compassion inspired a generation of journalists, and her work highlights the human impact of war while telling the bigger story beyond the battlefields.
