Item # 564642
January 31, 1944
EVENING PRESS, Island of Guernsey (in the English Channel), Jan. 31, 1944
* Rare Nazi issue from a captured island
A very curious issue, as Guernsey, an English-speaking island, was occupied by the Germans during WWII so all the news was pro-Nazi.
Among the front page heads are: " 'Britain's Role in Europe is Finished for Ever' -- Herr Hitler" "Fuehrer's Stirring Speech to German People" is quite lengthy; "Field Greys are Smashing The Reds--Battle Aircraft Rend Transport Fleet off Italy" "Heavy Raid on London--Strong Bolshevik Thrusts Repelled".
Complete as a single sheet newspaper, small folio size, great condition.
