Air battle continues after the Japanese surrender...
Item # 678943
August 17, 1945
LOS ANGELES HERALD EXPRESS, August 17, 1945
* Takijirō Ōnishi suicide death
* "Father of the kamikaze attacks"
In a rather rare war-related headline some 3 days after the surrender of Japan essentially ending the war, the banner head above the masthead announces: "JAPS BATTLE YANK PLAINES OVER TOKIO" plus; "Jap Kamikaze Corps Chief Takes Own Life" with other related subheads.
The complete first section (of 2) with pages 1-14, very nice condition.
