The original "photo-journalist," Robert Capa left behind a body of war photography that today remains outstanding in its courageousness and honesty. This volume offers a detailed survey of six of Capa's most important war reportages, from the first half of his career: the "Falling Soldier" (1936), the Chinese resistance to the Japanese invasion (1938), the end of the Spanish Civil War in Catalonia (1938-1939), D-Day (1944), the U.S. paratroop invasion of Germany (1945) and the liberation of Leipzig (1945). It also includes a critical consideration of Capa's omission of concentration-camp documentation. First published in 1985, this revised edition features an introduction by esteemed photohistorian Richard Whelan and is supplemented with extensive historical materials: vintage prints, contact sheets, letters and magazine layouts, many of which are published here for the first time.
