    At the outbreak of World War II she was living in London when the bombing of the city began. Ignoring pleas from friends and family to return to the US, Miller embarked on a new career in photojournalism as the official war photographer for Vogue, documenting the Blitz. Miller was accredited into the U.S. Army as a war correspondent for Condé Nast Publications from December 1942. She teamed up with the American photographer David E. Scherman, a LIFE correspondent on many assignments. Miller traveled to France less than a month after D-Day and recorded the first use of napalm at the siege of St. Malo, the liberation of Paris, the battle for Alsace, and the horror of the Nazi concentration camps at Buchenwald and Dachau. One photograph by Scherman of Miller in the bathtub of Adolf Hitler's apartment in Munich is one of the most iconic images from the Miller-Scherman partnership. (Wiki).

    The photograph on the left is the burning of the Berghof in 1945 and the photograph in the centre is the bombing of the Non-Conformist chapel in London in 1940. Many of her photographs are too shocking and graphic for this post and on trawling the net to find suitable ones I came across a Lee Miller thread already started by Scout on this very forum last year!

    ..and one for the record. Wasn't she something?
