Slightly Out of Focus is the classic World War II memoir of one of the most gifted photographers who ever lived. Robert Capa arrived in Europe on a photojournalism assignment in 1941, and for the next four years traveled throughout the embattled continent, documenting the war from the perspective of men and women of the Allied Forces who befriended, amused, and captivated him along the way. His photographs are treasures, and his writing is by turns riotously funny and deeply moving. This edition includes more than one hundred photographs, notably Capa's defining images of the Normandy landing. Charming and profound, Slightly Out of Focus is a masterpiece of words and photographs.
