1942 Doolittle raid of Japan....



Item # 672510

April 20, 1942

DAILY NEWS, New York City, April 20, 1942

* The famous Doolittle raid of Japan
* U.S. Army Air Force B-25B Mitchell bombers
* USS Hornet aircraft carrier


The top half of the front page is taken up with a nice, displayable headline: "BOMBS STILL BAFFLE JAPS; NEW ALARMS" with coverage beginning on page 3. This was the famous Doolittle raid on Japan. It was not known at the time that James "Jimmy" Doolittle was involved due to secrecy.
Incomplete issue containing 12 of the 44 pages, nice for display as such.

Note: It's very uncommon to find these famous tabloid publications from this era.
