Joao Silva has captured one of the more stunning photo essays of war in some time. On contract for The New York Times, his photos this week from Iraq show the growing threat of snipers, but they also show the everyday heroism in battle. Not much more is needed to say other than WOW. I see a Robert Capa Gold Medal in Mr. Silva’s future.

C.J. Chivers, who narrates the multimedia presentation, has the full story.
