Here’s a little bit of historical trivia about this picture I bet you didn't know. " . . . taken on June 6, 1944 (D-Day), on the first assault wave on Omaha Beach. Capa took 108 pictures in the first couple of hours of the invasion. However, a staff member at Life made a mistake in the darkroom; he set the dryer too high and melted the emulsion in the negatives. Only eight frames in total were recovered."
