THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 16, 1918
* 2nd battle of the Marne begins
* World War I - WWI
The front page has a banner headline: "AMERICAN DRIVE GERMANS BACK OVER MARNE; TAKE 1,000 PRISONERS AND CHECK BIG DRIVE; GERMAN ATTACK ON A 60-MILE FRONT FAILS" with subheads and related map. (see) Plenty of World War I coverage including the beginning of the second battle of the Marne. First report here.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 24 pages, light toning and some wear at the margins, generally good. Should be handled with care.
