1945 USS Bunker Hill... Japanese kamikaze attacks....

Item # 687365

June 28, 1945

TAUNTON DAILY GAZETTE, Mass., June 28, 1945

* USS Bunker Hill - Essex-class aircraft carrier
* Invasion of Okinawa - Kamikazes attack

The front page has a two column heading: "Bunker Hill Hit by Two Suicide Planes Will Fight Again" with 3 related photos above the masthead. (see) First report coverage on the Japanese kamikaze attacks on the USS Bunker Hill during the invasion of Okinawa. Reporting on many disasters such as this were kept from the public, sometimes for many months, until the family members of the killed were all notified, giving the reason for this late report. Still a first report here.
Complete with 12 pages, light toning and some wear at the margins, mainly along the spine, generally good.
