Item # 660441

December 22, 1945

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, December 22, 1945

* General George S. Patton death (1st report)
* Automobile accident or assassination ?

The front page has a banner heading: "Patton to Be Buried Along 3d Army's Victory Road" with subheads that include: "DIES IN SLEEP OF BLOOD CLOT; WIFE AT SIDE" and more. Seven related photos are on the back  page.
Complete with all 22 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
