Behr covered conflicts across the globe from the French-Algerian conflict to the Vietnam war for several publications, including Newsweek magazine, during his long career as a foreign correspondent.

He also provided a telling look at his own trade with "Anyone Here Been Raped and Speaks English?" (1981) a query reportedly called out by a British reporter looking for sources during a crisis in Congo.

Behr is survived by his wife, Christian.
