Warrior : Audrey Hepburn  Cover Image Book Book

Warrior : Audrey Hepburn / by Robert Matzen ; foreword by Luci Dotti.

Matzen, Robert, 1957- (author.). Dotti, Luca, 1970- (writer of foreword.).

Summary:

After her retirement from film and raising her two sons, actress Audrey Hepburn used her fame and influence to capture the media's attention as she charged into the most dangerous places on earth to save children and mothers in dangerous situations. Matzen describes how Hepburn walked away from Hollywood to raise her sons, and then joined UNICEF, the organization that had saved her as a Dutch girl at the end of World War II.
Warrior: Audrey Hepburn completes the story arc of Robert Matzen's Dutch Girl: Audrey Hepburn and World War II. Hepburn's experiences in wartime, including the murder of family members, her survival through combat and starvation conditions, and work on behalf of the Dutch Resistance, gave her the determination to become a humanitarian for UNICEF and the fearlessness to charge into war-torn countries in the Third World on behalf of children and their mothers in desperate need. She set the standard for celebrity humanitarians and--according to her son Luca Dotti--ultimately gave her life for the causes she espoused.
