The front page has a very nice banner headline: "BRITISH GET 50 WARSHIPS, TRADING BASES WITH U.S." with many subheads. Nice for display.
Complete with all 30 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, archival mend along the right margin, generally in good condition.

wikipedia notes: Lend-Lease was the name of the program under which the United States of America supplied the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, China, France and other Allied nations with vast amounts of war material between 1941 and 1945 in return for, in the case of Britain, military bases in Newfoundland, Bermuda and the British West Indies. It began in March 1941, nine months before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
