“2600 AMERICAN PLANES DOWNED OVER NORTH VIET NAM”

Vietnam Courier
Hanoi, North Vietnam
December 4, 1967

Here is simply an amazing find–a North Vietnamese propaganda newspaper from the middle of the Vietnam War! The scans show just a few of the headlines, “news” stories and rare photographs in this 8-page issue. The Communists continually vastly overrate the number of U.S. casualties and downed aircraft, while trumpeting news of their “great victories” in battle. There are also editorials designed to break the morale of American citizens–and there is some truth to these pieces–one is based on American newspaper reports. Typical statements in this paper include, “So long as the American imperialists do not end definitively and unconditionally their bombings of the North and aggression in the South, and withdraw their troops, they will certainly be defeated in the battlefield and cannot deceive public opinion with their words and save the U.S. from its present predicament.”

8 pp., printed on very high quality paper. Some of the major headlines are in bold red print. I couldn’t put this copy down!
