October 18, 1941

THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 18, 1941

* USS Kearny torpedoed by German U-boat
* 1st U.S. destroyer attacked during WWII

The front page has a six column headline: "U.S. DESTROYER HIT BY TORPEDO OFF ICELAND" with subheads that include: "KEARNY ATTACKED" "Retaliation Is Demanded" and more with a photo of the USS Kearny (see photos). More on page 3. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Incomplete issue containing the 1st two leafs only (4 pages total) of a 34 page newspaper, nice for display as such.
