Bataan Death March in 1942... WWII...

Item # 699843

January 28, 1944

WILMINGTON MORNING STAR, North Carolina, January 28, 1944

* Bataan Death March (1st report)
* Imperial Japanese Army atrocities
* Made public for the first time

A terrific issue on the Bataan Death March with a seven column headline on the front page: "Army And Navy Release Horror Story Of Jap Brutality To Gallant Defenders On Bataan" with subheads. (see images) First report coverage continues on page 5. Lengthy text here with gruesome details that rival the Jewish concentration camps.
Complete with 12 pages, light toning at the margins and central fold, small pinkish stain from a address label being removed, generally in very nice condition.
