Item # 654591
June 15, 1940
LOS ANGELES EXAMINER, June 15, 1940
* Paris now occupied by Germany
* British commit to helping France
* Paris unhurt
The front page has the bold, 2-line, banner heading: "BRITISH IRON ARMY CHALLENGES NAZIS," with a subhead: "Italians Seize Nice: Maginot Line Holding!" - which tell of Paris falling to the Axis powers. Additional related reporting is found within, with photos. See images for details.
Complete in two sections, some (typical) browning at the fold, but overall good.
