Item # 651656
June 22, 1945
THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 22, 1945
* Battle of Okinawa, Japan ends
* Operation Iceberg victory
The front page has a five column headline: "OKINAWA IS OURS AFTER 82 DAYS" with subheads and related map. (see) First report coverage in the end of the Battle of Okinawa with the occupation of United States military. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 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.
