The Greatest War Photographer You've Never Heard of
"One of the few female combat photographers in the war was also the most daring." Catherine Leroy left her native France with no money, and partly because of her lack of resources spent her time in combat - most likely she saw the most combat of any war photographer of her era. On her 85th parachute jump, rumors circulated that she must have gotten permission to do it by sleeping with a colonel. She produced some of the most compelling images of the war, but didn't promote herself the way some of her male colleagues did and so has not been similarly celebrated.
