Relive History With a World War 2 Newspaper

Imagine the adventure of reading the news, as it unfolded, in an original World War 2 newspaper. An authentic newspaper from the TimothyHughes Rare & Early Newspapers archives is truly a piece of history in your hands. Every newspaper we sell is guaranteed to be original. We never sell reprints.

Our WWII newspapers cover every inch of the war from September 1939 when the rise of Hitler and the Nazi party led to the invasion of Poland, to Pearl Harbor and theD-Day invasion, the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, to the surrenders of Germany and Japan.

The majority of daily WWII newspapers printed battles reports and covered political events related to the war, with some issues eventually becoming quite noteworthy.

Pre-war Events and the Holocaust

The Holocaust, and the Nazi propaganda used to provide a rationale for eliminating the Jewish people, is well documented in newspapers from the era. In addition to the Holocaust and its atrocities, other pre-war events, such as the Great Depression, fascism, and increased militarism, are a few of the many factors that precipitated a climate for war. It is widely noted that the final straw that led to World War II was the German and Russian invasion of Poland in 1939.
