Attempt to kill Hitler... Real life "Valkyrie" event...
Item # 563529
July 20, 1944
THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, Boston, Massachusetts, July 20, 1944
The popular movie starring Tom Cruise is based on the real-life event reported in this newspaper.
Being a early report, the front page has a small, breaking news style report with one column headline:
* Hitler Injured By Assailants
Most details were not known at this very early point in the attempted coup, as it happened earlier this same day, making this a small report. But it is still a 1st report.
This issue has minor spine wear, otherwise in nice condition. 12 pages.
