Item # 677331

August 24, 1939

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, August 24, 1939

* ATTACK BY HITLER IS FEARED TODAY!
* Bing Crosby in "Star Maker"


The front page has: "ATTACK BY HITLER IS FEARED TODAY!" This issue predates the start of WWII by less than a week. The front page has coverage of Germany and Russia's Treaty and Poland beginning "To Mobilize Her Reserve Troops".  This dramatic headline reflects the World's angst as it held it's breath.
Complete with all 26 pages.  In nice condition for the era with some edge ears and a small mend on the front page.  See images for more details.
