My Dad's WWII scrapbook
About a year ago, I inherited my Dad’s WWII newspaper scrapbook. I didn’t know he actually had it, I just heard about it once in awhile.
“When I was in high school, I followed the war closely and saved newspaper clippings throughout the wars”
When I found out he actually had it, and that it had newspaper articles (especially maps and pictures!) I was quite happy and made sure I was the child to get it.
One such article is the one attached - dated August 5, 1945, one day before an atomic bomb was dropped on a Japanese city, when no newspaperman had any clue. You will see the diagram for part of the planned invasion of Japan.
If anyone has requests for other dates or events, I just might oblige…
When playing Japan, don’t let your opponent take Okinawa! :grimacing:
