This 20 page newspaper has a interesting three column photo on the front page showing a group of 14 & 15 year old Nazis captured by U.S. Forces. Brief text underneath includes: "After they were captured they were still arrogant and believed that Hitler would still win the war for Germany." Also on the front page is "Ernie Pyle to Be Buried Alongside Soldiers on Obscure Ie Island". This reports that war journalist Ernie Pyle would be laid to rest alongside fallen soldiers in a simple military ceremony. Before going to to Okinawa and Ie Islands, he had a premonition that his luck might run out this time.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout with much on World War II. A little margin wear and chipping but otherwise in good condition.
