Capa’s Forgotten World War II Photos

The Daily Beast says: ‘In a year in which we have gone out of our way to recall the 75th anniversary of the Blitz, the World War II German bombing campaign against English cities that lasted from September 1940 to May 1941, there’s a neglected book on wartime London featuring the photographs of Robert Capa that deserves our attention this Veterans Day. That book, originally published by Random House, is the 1941 “The Battle of Waterloo Road,” which Capa did with the British journalist Diana Forbes-Robertson, and it captures with visual brilliance what happens when a war of terror is unleashed on an entire population and the population fights back with the only tool at its disposal—its pluck.’
