  1. A fantastic production about an incredible woman who "marched to a different drum". My complements to MPTV for this outstanding historical biography….

  2. The greatest woman in the world for me! I'd very much like to communicate with her relatives, just to tell them that Dickey is still remembered even in Russia. I've been really touched. She's continuing her life in our hearts – hearts that has been touched by her photoes, by her life. We still love her even without knowing her alive.

  3. wow!!!!! what a riveting video! thank you so much for uploading this amazing vdeo on this great person!!! i had tears in my eyes towards the end.

  4. Randomly came across a gruesome photo of this phenomenal woman being given the last rites after a booby-trap mine incident in Vietnam 1965, the tragic end of an epic trail-blazing road. It is astonishing that a person of such legendary calibre has not yet had a biopic made!

  5. Too my shame, I've never heard of Dickey Chapelle. She's my kind of woman. Way before her time. Fiesty and fearless. I thank her for paving the way for so many other women!

  6. Eisenhower created her because he said 'take lots of pictures boys' when he and his Army discovered the concentration camps because 'sure as shit, these bastards will say it never happened'…

  7. I was in 8th grade the first time I had heard of her. I was in history class & it was the last day of school before summer break. My history teacher had a bunch of old National Geographic magazines in the back of the class, in shelves. I asked if I could look at one & she said, "Of course". So it was one from the 60's & there was Dickey's photo. I read the whole thing & a part of the story she wrote after….Ever since then, she became one of my favorite famous women. And it also inspired me to join the Army, which I did in 1995 & served 6 years….RIP, Dickey, keep inspiring others as I was….
