Russia declares war in Japan...



Item # 671807

August 08, 1945

HONOLULU STAR-BULLETIN, 2nd EXTRA, Aug. 8, 1945 

* Russia declares war on Japan
* Hiroshima, Japan atomic bombing


Very late in the war, in fact less than a week before Japan surrendered, Russia declared war on Japan, noted here in a dramatic banner headline above the masthead: "RUSSIA WAR ACTION DOOMS JAPANESE!" with subheads (see). Nice to have from the spot where the U.S. entered the war, rare as such.
Complete with 16 pages, two folds, generally very nice.
