1945 General Patton auto accident...

Item # 658900

December 10, 1945

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, December 10, 1945

* General George S. Patton automobile accident
* Great headline for display - rare as such

The front page has a great banner headline: "PATTON HURT IN AUTO CRASH" with subheads and small photo of Patton. (see) First report coverage on General George Patton's auto accident which would lead to his ultimate death a week and a 1/2 later. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 34 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
