Tokyo Rose Dies

Dry Bones cartoon -Tokyo Rose dies

The two media "stars" of this period were Axis Sally and Tokyo Rose. Both were Americans. The woman known as Tokyo Rose died this week.

For the story of both (and Lord Haw Haw, the British Nazi broadcaster) click on the photo of the two ladies below:
