First published in 1947, this book is the exciting autobiography of Robert Capa, which brings together his texts and photographs about World War II. In 1942, Capa leaves from New York for the United Kingdom to cover the war as an envoy of Collier’s magazine. Its objective is not to be a simple witness of the facts. He is not a spectator of war but lives the war. He is a reporter and paratrooper and will disembark with the allies on the Norman beaches, becoming one of the men he accompanies.
