* 1st major battle between American & German forces
The top of the front page has a five column headline: "AMERICANS TAKE KASSERINE GAP" with subheads and related map. (see) First report coverage on the Battle of Kasserine Pass during the Tunisia Campaign. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 38 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
