Item # 659011
June 9, 1944
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, June 9, 1944.
* Normandy invasion - France being occupied by U.S. Army
* World War II German defense falling apart
The front page has a nice banner headline: "TANK BATTLE RAGING" "Allies Widen Front; Aim at Cherbourg" with subheads. Nice for display. Related map on page 2. Related photos are on the back page. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 34 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
