World War II may be over: from the city where it began for the United States...



Item # 669496

August 14, 1945

THE HONOLULU ADVERTISER, Hawaii, Aug. 14, 1945

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


Full front page banner headline above the masthead is an early announcement of the war in the Pacific coming to an end: "JAPS ACCEPT TERMS, TOKYO RADIO SAYS" with a subhead: "Not Official; Washington Awaits Word" with many other front page related articles.
Indeed, the next day's edition in newspapers across the country would announce the end of WWII.
Great to have this account in a newspaper from the city where it began for the United States.
The complete issue with all 14 pages, two folds, generally good condition.
