More Japanese bombs hit Honolulu...



Item # 690413

March 05, 1942

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, March 5, 1942 
 
* Operation K - Japanese naval operation
* Second attack on Pearl Harbor


The front page has a banner headline: "JAP ISLE RAIDED BY 30 PLANES" with subheads. Also a small one column heading: "Bombs Fall In Honolulu" with even small subheads. (see)
Complete with 34 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp with the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.

wikipedia notes: Operation K was a Japanese naval operation in World War II, intended as reconnaissance of Pearl Harbor and disruption of repair and salvage operations following the surprise attack on 7 December 1941. It culminated on 4 March 1942, with an unsuccessful attack carried out by two Kawanishi H8K "Emily" flying boats. This was the longest distance ever undertaken by a two-plane bombing mission, and one of the longest bombing sorties ever planned without fighter escort.
