Lot Of 8 Stars And Stripes, Africa Editions From 1943 For Sale

Lot Of 8 Stars And Stripes, Africa Editions From 1943

Lot of North Africa Stars and Stripes from 1943I am consolidating my extensive collection of Stars and Stripes newspapers. This particular lot includes issues of varied quality. With two exceptions, all of these issues are complete. They were printed on poor quality newsprint during World War II, so they were not intended to withstand the ravages of time. Many of the pages are loose and some are torn completely along the fold. Those pages that remain attached are on the verge of coming apart at the folds. All are yellowed and stained from age and improper storage, some more so than others. All of the newspapers in this lot are frail, brittle, tattered, worn and creased. Some have holes and tears that make them a challenge to read. Handling these papers requires a delicate touch because of their fragile condition.
The Stars and Stripes newspaper was a wartime newspaper created by enlisted men in the European Theater of Operations. This particular lot includes editions produced in North Africa.
The lot includes:(5) 1943 Africa edition, Vol. 1, Nos. 22, 30, 37, 42, and 47. Dates are May 8, July 3, Aug. 21, Sept. 25 and Oct. 30.(1) 1943 Oran Daily, Vol. 1, No. 50. Date is July 11. This is not a complete paper. It includes only the front page and page 2. (see photo)(2) 1943 Algiers Daily, Vol. 1, Nos. 99 and 102. Dates are Aug. 31 and Sept. 3. The Sept. 3 issue is not complete. It includes only the front page and page 2.
Front pages from these papers include the big news of the day, especially the capture of Tunis and Bizerta, and the invasion of Sicily. Besides coverage of the war, each paper contains the usual stories and features one would expect to find in a 1940s newspaper. They include Hollywood gossip, pinup photos, sports results, and comic strips. Some of these papers include "Male Call," a comic strip about the vivacious Miss Lace, created by Milton Caniff specifically for Stars and Stripes. The letters column in each edition provides considerable insight into the soldiers' lives. Many papers in this lot contain artwork by Ed Vebell and Gregor Duncan. A magazine illustrator before the war, Duncan was killed by enemy fire in Italy in the spring of 1944.
