People in period military uniforms re-enact a historic battle in Tapiobicske (about 60 kilometres East-Southeast of capital city Budapest), Hungary on April 4, 2018.

169 years after the real Battle of Tapiobicske history enthusiasts reenacted the famous event with great joy. Hundreds of school children witnessed the unique history lesson and they enjoyed it almost as much as the people participating dressed as Austrian or Hungarian soldiers.

What makes this all most important is how Capa thinks about him in his only partially fictional autobiography.
