    1 thought on “Blood and Champagne: The Life and Times of Robert Capa

    1. Las cinco estrellas no son por Capa. No solo por él, que no deja de ser un personaje del que sabes lo que te cuentan otros y lo que te muestran sus fotografías. Las cinco estrellas son por el ingente trabajo que ha desarrollado Alex Kershaw. No solo desgrana la vida de Capa. También hace un recorrido por la historia y la vida de aquellos que coincidieron con Capa tal y como dice el título.Es fascinante, se lee como una novela, es dinámica y didáctica.Por eso no le escatimo ni una estrella. [...]

    2. Intelligent and entertaining biography with sources clearly quoted of the photojournalist Robert Capa: a man who knew how he wanted to live his life (not living in suburbia with wife & 3 kids - good for him).

    3. I don't like Robert Capa. For many years I couldn't even remember his first name, I could have sworn his name was Albert Capa. Besdies his politics, which are frustratingly contradictory, his is the kind of personality I cannot stand. He is an actor, he is a cheat, he is a lie. But people accept him because of his charm. He's funny, he has an accent, he's crazy. I don't like it when people can get by on a thin-skinned charm without the integrity many other people struggle with their whole lives. [...]

    4. A truly amazing biography of the photojournalist, Robert Capa. The research, the interviews, the testimonies were all impressive, and provided a satisfying look at a legend. Having known little else about Capa before reading this book, I was stunned to learn that he was Hungarian, that his real name was Andre Friedman ("Robert Capa" was the name he invented). Similarly I was fascinated to discover his friendship and falling out with Ernest Hemingway, his work with John Steinbeck (who, reportedly [...]

    5. An account of one of the first war photographers. The writing was decent, but the construction of the book annoyed me both with bottom-page notations and the manner of footnoting. Kershaw obviously had to make some assumptions because so much of Capa's life was invented, but he told us when he was doing so. Some writers don't. No matter how much he charmed the women, Capa was obviously a man's man. I just didn't find him particularly worthy of a biography.

    6. I'm not a great one for biographies, but this is certainly worth reading. Capa's life story is never boring and his extraordinary photographs of the mid-20th century are a testament to this. I have a hefty coffee table book of his photographs which I found myself looking through as an excellent accompaniment to this. You'll probably want to do the same.

    7. All I knew about Capa was that he took the famous photo "Falling Soldier," that he took nine photos of the D-Day landing, and that he carried on with Ingrid Bergman. Kershaw's biography addresses these three issues in much greater complexity as well as many other topics of which I was wholly unaware. Kershaw has a real grasp of his subject; the narrative is controlled and moves well. (Plus, with a title like this, the book has to be terrific.) Recommended.

    8. Alex Kershawin "Sotaa ja samppanjaa : Robert Capan elämä" (Otava, 2003) on kiinnostava läpileikkaus 1900-luvun kenties tunnetuimman valokuvaajan elämäntarinaan.Robert Capa eli elämän, joka olisi sopinut aivan yhtä hyvin kaunokirjallisen teoksen sivuille. Jos Capaa ei olisi ollut olemassa, olisi joku epäilemättä keksinyt hänet - tai oikeammin, jos Capa ei olisi keksinyt itseään, olisi jonkun muun pitänyt keksiä hänet!Robert Capaa ei nimittäin ollut alun perin olemassakaan. Oli v [...]

    9. A pretty good read for someone that you sort of cheered for, but then found him spiraling out of control with women, gambling, drinking and kind of giving up on life. I am a big fan of the author and finally had a chance of reading this book, which was one of his first books. I can see how some of his notes from this book were able to go into books like the Liberator, The Bedford Boys(awesome book) and possibly the interest of doing The Envoy (great book also).But the biography had some great qu [...]

    10. For a book on a world famous photojournalist, it ain't half missing decent photos! Capa's life plays out like a quintessential Hollywood adventurer, bouncing from assignment to assignment, downing cocktails with literary greats one minute and chatting up Ingrid Bergman the next. Could have used more interiority as the poor man unravelled from his perpetual case of ptsd, and I found the ending pretty abrupt. Indiana Jones with a viewfinder. Banged through it in a week or two.

    11. This book paints a vivid portrait of the esteemed war photographer and founder of Magnum, Robert Capa. Having previously read Slightly Out of Focus, Capa's memoir covering the D-Day landings and WWII experiences, this book paints a full picture of Capa's life and completes the story of a truly fascinating man who lived life to the fullest.

    12. "Capa miał już przygotowaną piersiówkę z koniakiem i termos z mrożoną herbatą. 'To będzie piękny materiał - powiedział. - Obiecuję wzorowe zachowanie. Nie będę ubliżał kolegom po fachu i ani razu nie wspomnę, jak doskonałe robię zdjęcia.'"

    13. Plowing through this- easy to read, suffers greatly from the lack of photos. The author couldn't obtain rights to use the Capa photographs, but this is an excellent companion piece to his body of work.

    14. Curiosa vida: fotografia, o perigo das guerras, bebidas, mulheres, amigos entre gente famosa, jogo Não é pra todos, mas ele viveu. O livro dá conta de nos mostrar a biografia de Capa.

    15. Well-researched and comprehensive, but could have used an editor. The writing might be politely described as chaotic.

    16. A well-researched accounting of a fascinating life and personality. Perhaps a bit romanticized, but engaging, provoking, and enlightening.

    17. Amazing,exceptionally thorough book which gives a deep insight into Capas life and the times he lived in.Well- written, addictive and gripping.

    18. Fascinating and Eye-Opening!Wow! What a full and adventurous life that the legendary photojournalist Robert Capa led. It's no wonder his life story was never made into a major motion picture; there would be too many literary and screen personalities that would have to be cast. And as he does with all of his other books, Alex Kershaw tells us the story of this legend without sounding like a textbook. I highly recommend this to everyone!
