THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 19, 1944
* Battle of Eniwetok begins - Marshall Islands
* World War II - Pacific campaign
The front page has a nice banner headline: "AMERICANS LAND ON ENIWETOK, FLANKING TRUK; GREAT VICTORY SEEN IN BLOW AT PACIFIC BASE" with subheads and related map. 1st report coverage on the landing of the 22nd Marine Regiment which began the Battle of Eniwetok. 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 28 pages, 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.
