Omaha Beach on D-Day

Omaha Beach on D-DayWritten by Jean-David Morvan and Séverine Tréfouël, Photographs by Robert Capa


The story of Robert Capa is first told through a graphic novel of his experience surrounding Omaha Beach and D-Day. Why are the photos so blurry? How did Capa end up on Omaha Beach?

The next part of the book is a biography of Robert Capa’s life. It is well documented and researched. It is accompanied by photos of his time on Omaha Beach, photos of himself, and some of his other work.

Readers will be fascinated by the work and back story of a field photographer during a war and the history of this iconic photographer.
