CAPA, BOB:

In the Ardennes I traded my fur lined cap for something utterly useless he offered in return. He was solemn that icy night. There were icicles in his hair.

It was the last time I saw him before he was killed.

(Robert Capa died on May 25th, 1954, covering the First Indochina War in Vietnam for LIFE magazine. He stepped on a landmine.)
