World War II American propaganda leaflet with an illustration of a Japanese man holding up one end of a house on his back while a rope being held by a military figure is tied to his ankle. Information in Japanese is written on the reverse. Japanese to English translation: "When it seems like one's house is about to collapse, there is no one who escapes. When it is not yet fallen, the bad aspects can be repaired. Japan is facing a national crisis. Young men, the military faction is corrupting the nation. Japan's recent air raids are proof that they have taken power for themselves by deceiving you. Replace the military faction. Ensure your own preservation, and save your country!" more...
