First to the Front

The Untold Story of Dickey Chapelle, Trailblazing Female War Correspondent

From the beginning of World War II through the early days of Vietnam, groundbreaking female photojournalist and war correspondent Dickey Chapelle chased dangerous assignments her male colleagues wouldn’t touch, pioneering a radical style of reporting that focused on the humanity of the oppressed. She documented conditions across Eastern Europe in the wake of the Second World War. She marched down the Ho Chi Minh Trail with the South Vietnamese Army and across the Sierra Maestra Mountains with Castro. She survived torture in a communist Hungarian prison. She dove out of planes, faked her own kidnapping, and endured the mockery of male associates, before becoming the first American female journalist killed while covering combat in 1965.

Chapelle overcame discrimination both on the battlefield and at home, with much of her work ultimately buried from the public eye ― until now. In First to the Front, the first authoritative biography of Chapelle, Lorissa Rinehart uncovers the incredible life and unparalleled achievements of this true pioneer, and the mark she would make on history.
