The Falling Soldier

 Full_metal_jacket …When I began the research for my biography of Robert Capa, in 1980, one problem I inherited was that of dealing with an allegation of fakery regarding Capa’s 1936 photograph of a Spanish Republican (Loyalist) militiaman collapsing into death, the so-called Falling Soldier. (Its proper title is "Loyalist Militiaman at the Moment of Death, Cerro Muriano, September 5, 1936." In this article the photograph will be referred to as The Falling Soldier; the man in the photograph, when not referred to by his name, will be called the Falling Soldier. The picture is one of Capa's two most famous (the other being of a GI landing on Omaha Beach on D-Day), and it has often been hailed as the greatest war photograph of all time
