Front Page History of the World Wars, edited by Arto DeMirjian, Jr. and Eve Nelson

Front Page History of the World Wars, edited by Arto DeMirjian, Jr. and Eve Nelson
Arno Press, 1976
316 pages
Library: 940.3 FRO

CAVE CANEM: pg 254 is out of order. It is the page for May 3, 1945, and is placed in among the 1944 pages.

This book does not have every single front page of the New York Times during the war years of WWI and WWII, nor does it explain why the pages chosen were chosen. About half the book is devoted to WWI front pages, the rest to WWII front pags.

In addition to these front pages (which need to be read by young eyes, or with a magnifying glass - the book is oversize but the print is still pretty teeny tiny) there are some blown up photos of various events. These photos come from other sources, archives, etc.
