[Invasion 68 Prague] 
1968, August
Tanks from the Warsaw Pact invade Prague to crush a short-lived period of political freedom in Czechoslovakia - the Prague Spring. Josef Koudelka documents the invasion and the photographs are widely published in the West although the name of the photographer is not given. In 1969 Robert Capa Gold Medal Award was awarded anonymously but it was not until sixteen years later that the identity of the photographer is acknowledged. On the fortieth anniversary of the invasion in 2008 Aperture publishes the book Invasion 68: Prague containing two hundred and fifty of the photographs Koudelka took. (21 August 1968)
