Report of the war's end, from where it began for the United States...



Item # 666487

August 15, 1945

HONOLULU ADVERTISER--Late City Final edition, Hawaii, Aug. 15, 1945 

* Japanese surrender - World War II
* From the origin of the war (U.S.)


The top half of the front page is taken up with a banner headline: "ALLIED OFFENSE ENDS" "JAP CABINET QUITS!" with various subheads, and a photo of celebratory sailors, the caption beginning: "Peace comes back to Honolulu...".
A terrific issue, as this is the city where the war began for the United States.
The complete first section with 16 pages (of 32), mild foxing & wear at the fold & margin, generally good condition.
