Allied Leaflet Warning Italian Civilians to Evacuate the Libyan Combat Zone
The leaflet measures approximately 4 7/8 by 7 7/8 inches. The leaflet was printed during the battle for North Africa as a warning to the Italian citizens of the province of Tripolitania in Libya. The paper shows some age toning and it has a small tear on one side. One side of the leaflet states, in Italian: ” Urgent warning! To the civilian population of Tripolitania: Soon the hurricane of the war will pass over and your land will become the battlefield. Get ready to evacuate” (“Avvertimento Urgente! Alla popolazione civile della Tripolitania: Fra poco l’uragano della guerre passera sui vostri che diverranno il campo di battaglia. Preparatevi ad Evacuare).
