This 16 page newspaper has four column headlines on the front page: "ALLIES SMASH GERMANS IN FLANDERS", "Great Battle Opens Operations on a Long Front", "MAY BE BIGGEST CONFLICT OF THE WHOLE WAR" with subheads (see photos).
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with more on World War I. Light browning with a little margin wear, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.
