Magnificent Eleven is a set of photographs from D-Day (June 6, 1944) taken by Robert Capa. Capa landed with the second wave of troops on Omaha beach, facing the month of German machine guns through the crypts of the Atlantic Wall.
Under constant crossfire, Capa took 106 photographs, but all except 11 i were destroyed in a processing accident in the Life magazine photo lab in London. The surviving photographs have since been named Magnificent Eleven. It is, however, a huge irony that what was left were blurry, surreal shots, which, however, conveyed the chaos and confusion of those historic moments in relief.
