Mary Roberts Rinehart, a novelist, playwright, and mother of the man whose name still graces a powerful publishing company was also a war correspondent during World War I. The book Kings, Queens and Pawns, first published in 1915, collects many of her reports. Delightful and disturbing reading, the book at first glance reads more like a novel than a collection of war reports. If you have an interest in Rinehart or the first world war, you won't want to miss this one.
