The first volume of a new series dedicated to exploring iconic moments in World War II history, Omaha Beach on D-Day is a fresh and captivating new take on one of the most important moments in World War II: the Allied forces storming the beach at Normandy. The photograph at the heart of this book is Robert Capa's world-famous shot of the Allied landing in 1944, and the authors of this remarkable work have gathered interviews, testimonials, contact sheets, and over forty pages of photographic archives from the Magnum Photos agency to fill in the history behind a single moment, captured forever on film. Using a combination of traditional comics narrative, photography, and nonfiction text, Omaha Beach on D-Day is a rich and accessible fresh take at a crucial moment in 20th century history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Since Capa s work is the prototype for all subsequent battlefront visual reporting, placing the viewer in the midst of military action, mostly before, around, and after combat but also, of course, harrowingly under fire, it s high praise of Bertail that his black, white, and gray art, drawn with both pen and brush, ideally complements Capa s photojournalism."
