MacArthur lands in Japan....

Item # 685427

August 31, 1945

THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 31, 1945

* United States Marines land on Japan
* General Douglas MacArthur takes control
* World War II American Occupation begins

The front page has a nice banner headline announcing: "M'ARTHUR OPENS HEADQUARTERS IN YOKOHAMA; FINDS JAPANESE ACTING IN FULL 'GOOD FAITH'; FREED PRISONERS CHARGE BRUTALITY BY FOE" with many subheads and related photo. Coverage on the initial landing in Japan by the United States Marines and General Douglas MacArthur soon after the end of World War II. The official signing on the USS Missouri would take place two days later. Nice to have in this famous NYC title.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 pages, rag edition in very nice condition.
