CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, September 17, 1942
* USS Aircraft Carrier Yorktown sinking
* Battle of Midway aftermath
* World War II - WWII
The front page has a five column heading: "Eyewitness Story of Yorktown's Death" with subheads that include: "TELLS HOW VALIANT SHIP FOUGHT TO STAY AFLOAT" (see) More on pages 10 and 11 with related diagram. Two nice photos on page 12. (see) This sinking actually happened a few months earlier but this was when it was 1st made public making it still a first report.
Complete with all 40, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
