THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 9, 1944 

* General George S. Patton 
* World War II - WWII
* Prelude to the Battle of the Bulge


The top of the front page has a five column headline: "GERMANS LAUNCH HEAVY ATTACK" with subheads that include: "Patton Lines Hold". See photos for partial coverage of Patton's movements just one week prior to the Battle of the Bulge.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 30 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.
