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. It is accompanied by an English translation of the text. The leaflet reports that the Allied Forces now hold supremacy both in the air and the sea and that the Japanese forces in the Pacific are isolated. The message stresses that it is useless to fight vigorously in isolated battlefields without sufficient ammunition and modern weapons. It is also emphasised that the Japanese military government began the war recklessly without consideration of their industrial capacity which was far inferior to that of the United States.
