Content: This item is a Japanese-language propaganda leaflet produced by the Far Eastern Liaison Office during the Second World War. An English translation of the text is attached. Printed on one page of the leaflet is a illustration depicting a Japanese soldier watching fires on the Philippines from the former Dutch East Indies. The text on the other side reports the fall of Manila in the Philippines. It states that the Japanese were defeated in the Philippines because their troops in the South were immobilised due to the loss of air and naval supremacy in the region. The message attributes the situation to the military leaders of Japan who commit one blunder after another.
