World War II... Russian invasion...
Russian troops pour into Poland...
Item # 614884
September 18, 1939
THE NEW YORK JOURNAL AMERICAN (EXTRA), NY, September 18, 1939 (single page only) A very displayable front page with the banner heading, "Reds Sweep INto Poland In Drive to Meet Nazi Army Today." The caption above a photo of in-pouring tanks reads, "Warsaw Leaders Flee Over Line to Rumania." The back page has a map if the region and a 4-column heading, "Poland Invaded By Soviet Army." Another article is headed, "Russia 'Explains' Polish Invasion.
The page is in overall good condition, but is a bit close-trimmed on both sides (with no loss of text). There is also non-distracting light inking residue in the lower region of the front page (see images).
