    Looking at your choices, it reminds me of "Who wants to be a millionaire?"

    Is it A - World War I
    or B - Spanish Civil War
    .
    .
    .
    .

    Is that your final answer?

    B. Spanish Civil War.

    His most famous photo from that war is "Death of a Loyalist Soldier"

    His real name is "Endre Friedman", and he's most famous for his quote "if your picture is not good enough, you are not close enough". That is, until he got too close to a land mine and got killed.
