1944 Battle of Kwajalein Atoll....

Item # 691486

February 02, 1944

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 2, 1944

* Battle of Kwajalein Atoll
* World War II Pacific Campaign vs. Japan
* Marhsall Island - Roi-Namur

The front page has a nice banner headline: "U. S. FORCE WINS BEACHES ON MARSHALLS ATOLL; BATTLES RAGE ON FIRST JAPANESE SOIL INVADED" with subheads and related photo. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 38 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
