Content: This Japanese-language propaganda leaflet was produced by the Far Eastern Liaison Office at the end of the Pacific War. An English translation of the text is attached. The leaflet was supposed to have been written by a Japanese officer with a statement that the lives of Japanese troops will be better utilised if they surrender to the Allies. He mentions a Japanese unit which surrendered in New Guinea and points out that the troops of this unit are well cared for and rested.
