Battle of Kwajalein ends in victory....

Item # 672484

February 03, 1944

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 3, 1944

* Battle of Kwajalein Atoll ends with U.S. victory
* World War II Pacific Campaign vs. Japan
* Marhsall Island - Roi-Namur

The front page has a nice banner headline: "MARINES CAPTURE ROI ISLAND, LAND ON NAMUR; OUR CASUALTIES MODERATE; ENEMY SURPRISED" with subheads and related map. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 36 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
