NEW YORK POST., August 29, 1945
* Official Pearl Harbor attack report
* President Harry S. Truman releases
* Japan occupation just before peace signing
On August 29, 1945, with America’s enemies vanquished, President Harry S. Truman released the results of secret Army and Navy investigations into the Dec. 7, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that took the lives of more than 2,400 Americans, sunk or damaged 21 ships in the U.S. Pacific fleet and brought the United States into World War II. The reports found top commanders in Washington – particularly former secretary of state Cordell Hull and Gen. George Marshall, the Army chief of staff — largely responsible for the lack of preparedness at Pearl Harbor.
The front page features a headline within a photo of the Pearl Harbor attack: "TRUMAN REPORTS ON PEARL HARBOR" The top of page 3 has a banner heading: "Pearl Harbor report Blames Marshall--Truman Clears Him" with a few related photos.
Complete with 48 pages, tabloid size, some spine wear, a few light stains, generally nice.
