1945 USS Franklin aircraft carrier disaster...



Item # 659237

May 18, 1945

NEW YORK TIMES, May 18, 1945

* USS Franklin (CV-13) disaster
* Japanese dive bomber attack
* United States Navy aircraft carrier


The front page has a five column headline: "LOSS OF 832 ON U. S. SHIP REVEALED" with subheads and nice photo of the carrier just after the attack. Much more on page 3 with more related photos and map. This disaster happened a few months earlier but this is when it was first made public. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 34 pages, light toning at the margins, very nice condition.
