A Nazi newspaper from a British island: on Japan's Pearl Harbor attack...



Item # 691292

December 20, 1941

THE STAR, Island of Guernsey (in the English Channel), Dec. 20, 1941  

* Rare German occupation publication
* Attack on Pearl Harbor reporting


A very curious issue, as Guernsey, an English-speaking island, was occupied by the Germans during WWII so all the news was pro-Nazi.
Among the front page reports are: "Japan had Warned The United States" from less than 2 weeks after Pearl Harbor. Also: The Pearl Harbor Raid - 5 Battleships Sunk, 4 Damaged and 450 Planes Destroyed" ""Japan Inflicts Heavy Losses on U.S.A: Navy" "Japan's Entry Into War Makes Big Addition to British Shipping Losses" and more.
Four pages, good condition.
