A complete edition (4 pages) of a Japanese newspaper dated October 10, 1944, during the Battle of Leyte Gulf in the Philippine Islands. A headline reports "Leyte Bay Enemy Half-Paralyzed". The newspaper shows typical age toning that is found in old newsprint, and there are the standard horizontal fold lines common to newspapers, but the paper is complete and legible. The newspaper was stored rolled and so there may be some curling or minor crinkling of the paper. Approximately 16 by 21 inches in size.
