August 29th 1939 - BRITISH JOURNALIST’S BIG SCOOP

Today it is reported that a young, intrepid journalist crossed over the border from

Poland to Germany. There, she saw something that would change her life and

history forever…

 

From the busy newspaper offices in London to the frontline during World War II, Clare’s adventures tell the remarkable true story of one of the most important writers of our time.
