Item # 652915
January 2, 1945
THE STARS & STRIPES, Jan. 2, 1945
* Battle of the Bulge
The top of the front page has a photo of the new-created five star general insignia, created by a Public Law by Congress on December 14, 1944. Those to be conferred with this honor within a week of its creation were George C. Marshall, Douglas MacArthur, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. See the hyperlink for the interesting history of "General of the Armies". Great to have this notable report in this military newspaper.
The front page also has a photo of Adolph Hitler with an article headed: "Fuehrer Tells People That Germany Never Will Capitulate - Stubborn"
Eight pages, some margin wear, mostly along the spine.
