Robert Capa was one of the important war photographers of the twentieth century. He was a storyteller par excellence, and the combination of his photographs, and his account of personal adventure, make this one of the most sought after photobooks ever published. It was cited as one of the 101 seminal photographic books of the 20th Century by Andrew Roth. There are halftone photographs throughout, some full-page and others smaller, taken in Europe and North Africa from the summer of 1942 until the end of the war. After covering five wars, Capa stepped on a landmine in Vietnam in 1954 and died at age 41, the first American correspondent killed in Vietnam.

Description: Hard bound with price clipped dust jacket. Orange cloth covered boards, with titles in black. Capa’s account of his experiences as a photographer on the European and North African fronts during the Second World War. General shelf wear to boards, and slight age toning to pages. Interior clean and binding tight. The dust jacket shows wear, tears and large chips. Now protected in clear removable Brodart protective cover. Scarce!
