SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, September 17, 1942
* USS Aircraft Carrier Yorktown sinking
* Battle of Midway aftermath
* World War II - WWII
The front page has a five column photo showing crewman on the carrier deck shortly after the Japanese attack. Also a one column heading: "Yorktown Sunk During Midway Battle" (see) More related articles on page 5. This sinking actually happened a few months earlier but this was when it was 1st made public making it still a first report.
Complete with 26 pages, light toning at the margins, small pinkish library label within unrelated headline (see), some small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
