Marie Colvin, the acclaimed international war correspondent for The Sunday Times in London, lived a frenetic life. She was a Yale-educated native of Long Island’s North Shore who hurried from one war zone to the next, reporting on the worst of humanity, again and again. This hard-bitten reporter, who was raised by two schoolteachers in East Norwich, in the Town of Oyster Bay, seemed at once out of place amid the chaos of war and utterly in her element.
Colvin covered many of the world’s hot spots — West Beirut, East Timor, Iraq, Libya, Syria. She died in 2012, at age 56, amid the rubble of Homs, Syria, in a rocket attack launched by the Syrian army, which President Bashar al-Assad controls.
