Description
During World War II, Marlene Dietrich transformed from a lifelong Berliner and a darling of German popular culture into an American soldier and a vocal critic of the Third Reich. It was a personal journey as conflicted and intense as any role she played onscreen, as revealed in this collection of interviews conducted by Dietrich's grandson, illustrated with publicity stills, family photos, candid shots, military photos, and ephemera. Among 23 personal accounts by those whose lives she touched during the war and in the decades after—including Colonel Barney Oldfield, Rosemary Clooney, Burt Bacharach, Cher, Nazi hunter Beate Klarsfeld, and her own daughter Maria Riva—Dietrich dances with soldiers and washes dishes at the Hollywood Canteen, helps a military journalist's career, sings a German lullaby for an Israeli audience, and cooks a steak for a young songwriter.

"Dietrich's films are always here to be seen. This book is the perfect complement: the earthy real woman beneath the beads and glitter, the Prussian soldier who was nothing like the artificial sexual phantom on-screen. She was a better actress and a greater person than she has been given credit for. It is time to re-evaluate Miss Dietrich. A Woman at War begins the process."—New York Post
