San Francisco: Communist Party of California, 1942. No Edition Stated.
Seven-page mimeographed document, 8 1/2 x 11 inches (217 x 280 mm), stapled in top left-hand corner.
A "Dear Comrades" letter addressed to all branches of the Communist Party in California, Arizona, and Nevada, urging them to meet and discuss an editorial in the August 1942 issue of the Communist, "No Delay in Opening the Western Front." The letter provides reading suggestions from Communist Party publications and suggests that party members bring articles from the non-Communist press that favor a second front against Germany. It further warns that "appeasers" are trying to prevent the opening of a second front and provides counter-arguments to those opposing the second front.
No institutional copies found in OCLC. None in commerce. RARE.
An interesting look at how the Communist Party sought to mobilize popular support for a second front in Europe.
