Original WW2 Stars and Stripes Newspaper - European Theatre

Ca. 1942 - 1945

Saturday October 28, 1944

 

The official newspaper of the United States Military Forces in the European Theatre. Produced by the Military to boost morale and keep fighting men and women informed on the war.

This paper was part of a collection of a WW2 Veteran who sent them home where they were saved by the family. It is now your turn to take care of this record of the direst time of human history. 

 

** Stars & Stripes Newspaper **

World War II or the Second World War, often abbreviated as WWII or WW2, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. It involved the vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis powers. In a total war directly involving more than 100 million personnel from more than 30 countries, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. Aircraft played a major role in the conflict, enabling the strategic bombing of population centres and the only two uses of nuclear weapons in war. World War II was by far the deadliest conflict in human history; it resulted in 70 to 85 million fatalities, a majority being civilians. Tens of millions of people died due to genocides, starvation, massacres, and disease. In the wake of the Axis defeat, Germany and Japan were occupied, and war crimes tribunals were conducted against German and Japanese leaders.
