Show synopsis First published in June 1941, Looking for Trouble is the tour de force testimony of an American debutante who became a roving war correspondent noted for her bravery and perceptiveness. "Virginia Cowles went looking for trouble, and did she find it...While covering the Spanish Civil War, she had only to arrive in Valencia for the first bombs to fall there...Attending the 1938 party congress in Nuremberg, she was terrified by the frenzy of adulation for Hitler". (Daily Mail). "She was in Berlin the day Germany launched its attack on Poland, in Helsinki as the Russians invaded Finland, and she reached Paris when the Germans were just 17 miles from the city...It was war reporting of a long gone era, when journalists were not embedded but ranged freely...Looking for Trouble is a reminder of how excellent a reporter [Cowles] was". (Caroline Moorhead, Spectator).
