Cold War Correspondent: A Korean War Tale

In 1950, Marguerite Higgins (1920–1966) was made bureau chief of the Far East Asia desk for the New York Herald Tribune. Tensions were high on the Korean peninsula, where a border drawn after WWII split the country into North and South. When the North Korean army crossed the border with Soviet tanks, it was war. Marguerite was there when the Communists captured Seoul. She fled with the refugees heading south, but when the bridges were blown over the Han River, she was trapped in enemy territory.

Her eyewitness account of the invasion was a newspaper smash hit. She risked her life in one dangerous situation after another –– all for the sake of good story. Then she was told that women didn’t belong on the frontlines and officially ordered her out of Korea. She appealed to General Douglas MacArthur, and he personally lifted the ban on female war correspondents, which allowed her the chance to report on many of the major events of the Korean War.

Discover the Korean War through the eyes of the journalist who covered it in this installment of the New York Times bestselling series Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales, graphic novels that tell the thrilling, shocking, gruesome, and TRUE stories of American history.
