Report on Pearl Harbor, in a pro-Nazi newspaper...
Item # 679446
December 10, 1941
EVENING PRESS, Island of Guernsey (in the English Channel), Dec. 10, 1941
* Rare German occupation title
* Bombing of Pearl Harbor
* World War II - WWII
A very curious issue, as Guernsey, an English-speaking island, was occupied by the Germans during WWII so all the news was pro-Nazi.
The bottom half of the front page has two column heads on the bombing of Pearl Harbor: "Heavy American Shipping Losses" "Two Battleships and Aircraft Carrier Sunk" with various details (see), being the Nazi report of the attack upon Pearl Harbor. The rest of the front page has various reports concerning World War II including: "England Cannot Create a Second Front--British Material Totally Inadequate" "British Destroyer & Four Ships Sunk Out of Convoy East of Dundee" and much more.
Great to have this report concerning Pearl Harbor in a pro-Nazi newspaper. Four pages, small folio size, some creases in the bottom half of the issue, otherwise very nice condition.
