Vol. 2 No. 40 ……. VJ Issue ……. This week’s cover shows the Japanese reaction to the surrender news that sent GI’s all over the world into transports of joy. This Jap prisoner of war has just heard the Emperor’s announcement of the end of the war. The Nip soldier, the samp type of soldier that swaggered through ruined Nanking, that laughed at Corregidor, that swore to die ten million times before surrendering, is weeping like a Chinese peasant before his burned-out home. Japan has lost face forever. The cover is a montage made from an official U. S. Navy photo of a Guam prisoner of war.
