“I SAW THE TANKS LINED UP READY TO INVADE POLAND.”

Clare Hollingworth’s 100th birthday was celebrated in an article appearing in the BBC News, Hong Kong, video from Telgraph and in ABC News Online. Ms. Hollingworth was responsible for the biggest scoop of the 20th century.

Having worked for London’s Daily Telegraph for less than a week, she was asked to go to Poland. She reported at the end of August, 1939: “I saw the tanks lined up ready to invade Poland.” She was just ahead of them.
