Content: This item is a Japanese-language propaganda leaflet produced by the Far Eastern Liaison Office. The leaflet includes a picture of a large American convoy in Lingayen Gulf and a text in Japanese discussing the incompetence of the Japanese Navy. The message states that the Japanese Navy made almost no attempts to attack the American invasion convoy although the Japanese had discovered the convoy travelling northward four days before. The message stresses that this incidence indicates that the Japanese ground troops can no longer rely on their Navy. It also mentions that Tokyo Radio has announced that more than 80 Japanese admirals have died in action since the Greater East Asia War began.
