I hope my story will serve as a testament to the idea that with courage and resolve, women truly can have it all.

Like many women, Thea Rosenbaum has had to overcome feelings of inferiority in a world run by men. Unlike most others, however, she did so from inside a nuclear submarine.

Rosenbaum started her career as Germany’s youngest and only female stockbroker before transitioning to the world of journalism, where she became Germany’s only woman war correspondent in Vietnam and later a producer for ARD German television in the United States, a role that allowed her to travel with five U.S. presidents and witness the fall of the Berlin Wall. Her most recent accomplishment is the publication of her memoir, aptly titled “No Place for a Lady.”

The book begins with Rosenbaum as a little girl escaping the Soviet Army in Berlin, and the story only escalates from there, detailing the author’s turbulent but rewarding life throughout the later half of the 20th century.

“I hope my story will serve as a testament to the idea that with courage and resolve, women truly can have it all,” Rosenbaum said.

Rosenbaum’s story is one fearless woman’s honest look at the intricacies of the Vietnam War and a world dominated by men. Readers will follow her through decades of baseless biases, extraordinary experiences and interactions with some of the western world’s most well known journalists.
