Slight crease in middle as seen in photo. Size 4 X 8 1/8. 2013 targeted Japanese civilians, not soldiers.
To convince Japanese civilians to abandon the idea of resisting American forces, the leaflet presents a well-known Japanese proverb as a device to argue that it is better to prevent the destruction of homeland Japan than to continue resistance until the nation is destroyed. The reverse of the leaflet contains this message in Japanese. These bombings will continue until your militarist leaders give up. You know we have the strength to continue until your beautiful land is laid in ruins. The militarists are continuing the war because they are afraid of punishment.
You are the ones who suffer. The whole nation suffers to satisfy a few selfish men. Force your leaders to bring an end to a hopeless war. That is the best prevention against bombing.
