PEARL HARBOR ATTACKED!
“DECLARE WAR ON U.S. AND BRITAIN”
December 8, 1941
Wow! Here is one of the best Pearl Harbor newspapers ever published using 3″ bold headlines (see scans). The shocking news continues inside with headlines like: “U.S. FLEET HITS BACK,” JAPS WAR ON U.S., RAID HAWAII GUAM.” “Treacherous,’ Hull Says; Denounces Jap Envoys.” Casualty reports stated that the battleship “West Virginia” had been sunk, and the “Oklahoma” set afire. (The real depth of the disaster was kept from the public for security purposes). “JAP BOMBS SEEN LEADING TO LAND ATTACK ON PHILIPPINES.” Another piece claims thatJapanese parachutists had landed in Hawaii and were supposedly part of suicide squads! It also claimed that “….the United States fleet steamed out of Pearl Harbor.”
Page after page of this incredible newspaper talk about the attack and beginning war in the Pacific. You just can’t put it down! The complete 64-page edition in very good condition with only minor wear to the spine. Can be easily picked up and read as someone surely did back in 1941.
