"Capa's work is itself the picture of a great heart and an overwhelming compassion. . . . He could photograph motion and gaiety and heartbreak. He could photograph thought. He captured a world."

Regarding the stories told in the book, somehow the war is the main theme but Capa's gregarious personality takes over, both because it's that personality that allows him make personal connections and get where others couldn't and because he comes out of every story as a quite an enchanting rascal.
For me it was a plus that he doesn't try to explain the whole where, when and how of each campaign and battle, all of them being extensively covered in the abundant WWII literature. This is very much a first person book and all that matters is finding the proper cover for the time being and checking the contents of the flask.
The photographs appear in the pages right next to the passages narrating the time when Capa took them, which I find a much more interesting setup than the common amalgamation of pictures towards the middle of the book.

he talks about the fog of war: he dared not ask for help from the soldiers he was with, because they couldn't see him in the dark or in the smoke, and with his heavy accent they were bound to mistake him for the enemy.
this memoir covers a pretty finite period of time in a very short life. (capa had a love affair with ingrid bergman, and this was the inspiration for the film 'rear window.') he started out as a journalist, and he's a good writer and story-teller as i said. you probably won't want to put the book down, but when you're finished you'll hold onto it for the sake of the photographs. i don't care about war history or photography particularly; my favorite pic is the one OF him at the front of the book--drunk and happy, in a tux.
This autobiographical book was supposed to be the plot of a movie made in Hollywood. It is just a great book about some of his best pictures.
