THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 14, 1918
* Battle of Saint-Mihiel Salient
* World War I - WWI
* Nice for display
The front page has a nice banner headline: "AMERICANS WIPE OUT ST. MIHIEL SALIENT, TAKING NEARLY 13,300 PRISONERS AND MANY GUNS" with subheads (see).
Twenty pages, light toning and wear with chipping at the margins, must be handled with care.
wikipedia notes: The Battle of Saint-Mihiel was a World War I battle fought between September 12–15, 1918, involving the American Expeditionary Force and 48,000 French troops under the command of U.S. General John J. Pershing against German positions. The United States Army Air Service (which later became the United States Air Force) played a significant role in this action.
This battle marked the first use of the terms 'D-Day' and 'H-Hour' by the Americans.
