Daily Mirror Palestine war diaries published

| 2

The memoires of Barbara Board, a Daily Mirror reporter for ten years, are to be published by her daughter Jacqueline in a new book, Reporting From Palestine. Barbara worked as Daily Mirror's frontline war correspondent from Palestine in the 40's and 50's,
"It was fascinating to discover everything she had done as a female reporter in an almost entirely masculine world. She clearly she had a woman's eye for the world. For example, when the Italian airforce bombed Tel Aviv, she was the only reporter who noticed the women running for their lives with their children." link

For the record, the book is already available and the author is Barbara Board, not Broad!
