1916 Battle of Verdun, France...

Item # 677577

May 23, 1916

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, May 23, 1916 

* Battle of Verdun, France
* World War I - WWI
* German vs. French armies
* Nice headline for display

The front page has a nice banner headline: "FRENCH MAKE BIG GAINS IN DESPERATE ATTACKS" with subheads. (see) Some consider this to be the greatest and lengthiest battle in World history. Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 14 pages, a little irregular along the spine, 2 small library stamps within the masthead, generally nice.
