Because, as Sonny mentioned, Che is on the cover. There's a little collection of famous images made with our favourite camera in the book, including Capa's "Falling Soldier", Eddie Adam's Siagon Chief of Police shooting a suspect, Cartier-Bresson's picnic by the Marne, Khaldei's Soviet flag over the Reichstag and, of course, Korda's "Che".

This must be the most famous photograph of all time, I should think. Certainly the most reproduced. What are the competitors? Armstrong's pic of Buzz Aldrin standing on the moon must be close...
