Battle of Okinawa begins & Tokashiki, Okinawa mass suicide...
Item # 658946
April 2, 1945
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, April 2, 1945
* Battle of Okinawa, Japan begins
* Tokashiki mass suicide
* World War II - WWII
The front page has a great banner headline: "ADVANCE 3 MI. ON OKINAWA" with subheads. Nice for display. More on page with related map and photo. Coverage on the beginning of the Battle of Okinawa. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Of particular interest is a one column heading at the top of page 5: "200 CIVILIANS DIE IN MASS SUICIDE AS YANKS LAND" with subhead. (see)
Complete with all 26 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
