Frame From the Roll of Film Found in Paul Schutzer's camera of the Six-Day War, June 1967

Paul Schutzer died 45 years ago, in June 1967, on the first day of the Six-Day War. The 36-year-old LIFE photographer was riding in a half-track personnel carrier with Israeli soldiers when he was shot through the head, moments before a bazooka round struck the half-track and wounded half a dozen troops.

Days later, Schutzer’s body was found. Alongside his remains was his camera, baking in the desert sun; inside were the last pictures he ever made. Here, presents those pictures, in humble tribute to a master photographer and a great journalist taken far too soon.
