The Importance of Ernest...

Robert Capa, the James Nachtwey of his day, was a fearless combat photographer who occasionally ran into Hemingway in Paris. At first he thought the writer was a general. Hemingway had a public relations officer, a lieutenant as an aide, a cook, a driver, a photographer and a special liquor ration. The driver would guard whatever establishment his master was drinking in with a loaded rifle in his arms.
