Omaha Beach-Normandy (France)



"If your pictures aren’t good enough," war photographer Robert Capa used to say, "you aren’t close enough." Words to die by, yes, but the man knew of what he spoke. 

On the morning of D-Day, June 6, 1944, when he landed alongside the first waves of infantry at Omaha Beach and caught under heavy fire, Capa dove for what little cover he could find, then shot all the film in his camera, and got out - barely. He escaped with his life, but not much else.
