A propaganda leaflet produced by the Far Eastern Liaison Office (FELO) during the Second World War. This leaflet is written in Japanese and was distributed to Melanesia and the Netherlands East Indies. It is accompanied by an English translation of the text. The leaflet states that the Japanese military leaders have not been honest about the war situation because they are afraid of the reaction of the public. It says that the military leaders cannot be honest because they are aware that they acted against the will of the Japanese people to start the Greater East Asia War and they feel that the call up of reverses would not be accepted by the public.
