Item # 682655

February 18, 1944

THE DETROIT FREE PRESS, February 18, 1944

* Operation Hailstone - Truk Island (Chuuk)
* World War II - WWII


The front page has a terrific banner headline announcing: "BOMB JAP FLEET AT TRUK" with subheads and related map. (see) First report coverage on "Operation Hailstone" which was a massive naval air and surface attack on Truk Island.
Complete with 20 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, generally nice.
