Book Review


Equal parts graphic novel, biography, and photo book, Omaha Beach on D-Day tells the story of photographer Robert Capa’s experiences on D-Day. Capa, described by London’s Picture Post as “the greatest war photographer in the world,” was assigned to travel with a unit landing in France on the infamous morning of June 6, 1944. Determined to capture the horror and reality of the beach landing on film, Capa faced heavy gunfire, harsh weather conditions, and mass confusion. The nine remaining photographs from Capa’s experience became some of the most defining photographs of World War II.
