Item # 660734
April 22, 1943
MINNEAPOLIS MORNING TRIBUNE, April 22, 1943
* re. The famous Doolittle raid of Japan
* U.S. Army Air Force B-25B Mitchell bombers
* Realization of Japanese executions
The front page has a nice banner headline announcing: "JAPAN EXECUTES U.S. FLIERS" with subheads. Nice for display. More on page 3 with photos of some of the possible victims. This was when it was first reported that the Japanese had executed some American airmen that were captured during the Doolittle raid. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 22 pages, some various ink notations throughout with 2 on the front page but none affect the key material, light toning at the margins, some small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
