Russia declares war on Japan... Hiroshima report...
Item # 629460
August 8, 1945
THE KANSAS CITY STAR. FINAL, Kansas City, Missouri, August 8, 1945 (outer leaves only)
* Russia declares war on Japan
* Hiroshima, Japan atomic bombing
Very late in the war, in fact less than a week before Japan surrendered, Russia declared war on Japan - which helped force their hand of surrender. Noted here is the dramatic banner headline: "RUSSIA DECLARES WAR ON JAPAN." Also appearing on the front page is a detailed report under, "IN AWESOME RUIN", which is a detailed report of the Atomic-bomb devastation in Hiroshima, Japan.
Outer leaves only (pages 1, 2, 19, and 20), with small margin tears. Nice for display as such. The front page does have a diagonal crease which can be viewed in the images.
