Robert Capa's war photos have such stunning immediacy it is hard to realize that those wars are long over. This authorized biography is published in conjunction with a retrospective exhibition at the International Center of Photography in New York. Capa, born in Hungary in 1913, later an American citizen, established a reputation as a daring war photographer with his photos of the Spanish Civil War, the Japanese invasion of China, World War II, and the Israeli War for Independence. He died in Indochina in 1954. The book records events and places, summarizes friendships. It includes a list of Capa's published photo-stories and an extensive bibliography. It is a good supplement to the photographs themselvesand Knopf is publishing a volume with 260 images. But although Whelan tells us a great deal about Capa's activities, the engaging, heedless, compassionate man is somehow missing. Illustrations not seen. J.R. Mosler, Hackettstown P.L., N.J.
