A couple of years ago, The Atlantic magazine published a retrospective 20-part series of photographs about World War II. There are approximately 900 amazing photos here, with many rarely seen before. As a former military photographer myself, I tried to work by Robert Capa’s motto “If your photos aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” I’d say all of the photos in this 20-part series exemplified Capa’s motto.
