She was the first war correspondent to report the outbreak of World War II, described as "the scoop of the century". As a reporter for The Daily Telegraph in 1939, while travelling from Poland to Germany, she spotted and reported German forces massed on the Polish border; three days later she was the first to report the German invasion of Poland. Hollingworth was appointed OBE by Elizabeth II for "services to journalism" in 1982. She was 105 when she died.
