You probably haven’t seen old war photographs this spectacular

Posted on 20 October 2010 Crni

Robert Capa, also known as Endre Ernõ Friedmann, was a Hungarian war photographer and journalist that managed to capture the most powerful scenes of wars in photographs. He covered five wars including the Spanish Civil War, the Second Sino-Japanese War, World War II across Europe, the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, and the First Indochina War. He also captured some World War II scenes. Below you can see black and white photos of exiled Republicans marching on a beach in France, a man carrying a wounded child, crowd listening to political speeches, both young and old soldiers, etc.
