1945 USS Intrepid... Japanese kamikaze attacks....

Item # 689853

July 30, 1945

THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland, July 30, 1945

* USS Intrepid - Essex-class aircraft carrier
* Luzon, Phillipines - Kamikazes attack

The top of the back page has a one column heading: "U.S. Carrier Destroyed 80 Enemy Ships" (see) First report coverage on the Japanese kamikaze attacks on the USS Intrepid. 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.
Complete with 8 pages, light toning at the margins, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
