Description During WWII, as accredited US war correspondents Lee Miller (for Vogue) and David E. Scherman (for LIFE magazine) continually crossed paths as they followed the US allies across Europe, documenting the Liberation and the horrors of war. They became one of the most highly regarded and often envied duos of the war. “How is it that every time I arrive somewhere to cover a story, you and Lee Miller are just leaving? “ Wrote Marguerite Higgins of the New York Herald Tribune. Having first met in London in 1941, Scherman lived with Lee and Roland Penrose in their Hampstead home. His relationship with Lee, which was more than just friendship, lasted throughout WWII.
