1945 USS Bunker Hill... Japanese kamikaze attacks....



Item # 673375

June 28, 1945

NEW YORK POST, June 28, 1945

* USS Bunker Hill - Essex-class aircraft carrier
* Invasion of Okinawa - Kamikazes attack


Page 3 has a photo showing the USS Bunker Hill burning with heading: "Bunker Hill in 1945" Also a three column heading: "Skipper Titled Blazing Carrier To Pour Burning Gas Into Sea" (see) First report coverage on the Japanese kamikaze attacks on the USS Bunker Hill during the invasion of Okinawa. Reporting on many disasters such as this were kept from the public, sometimes for many months, until the family members of the killed were all notified, giving the reason for this late report. Still a first report here.
Complete tabloid size issue with all 36 pages, light toning at the margins, a little spine wear, generally good.
