Condition: Very Good
Cover: Hirohito, the God Emperor of Japan, whose close-up
begins on page 69, is pictured riding his favorite charger, White Snow
at the annual troop review. The Emperor's army is mired deep in the
conflict with China. But the Emperor's Navy is spoiling for a fight.
It is a perpetual nuisance threat, likely to start trouble whenever we are
involved elsewhere. To parry any Japanese thrust in the South Pacific,
our Navy is now at the Hawaiian Islands.
