SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, December 8, 1942
* USS New Jersey launching
* Iowa-class battleship
* World War II - WWII
Page 7 has a three column photo with heading: "The Biggest Battleship Ever, Carrier Among Day's Launchings" (see) First report coverage on the launching of the USS New Jersey, Iowa-class battleship. This particular ship earned more battle stars for combat than any other battleship of this class. Curious they launched this ship on the one year anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
Complete with all 26 pages, some damage along the right margin of page 7, away from the mentioned report, light toning at the margins, small binding holes along the spine, generally good.
