Title

"War Has Passed Luzon" propaganda leaflet

Description

A propaganda leaflet issued by the Allied Forces during World War II after the battle for Iwo Jima in 1945. It was probably airdropped to Japanese troops on the Philippine Islands in the Luzon area, soon after the battle of Iwo Jima ended in March, 1945. One side features an image of a map showing Formosa, the Ryukyu Islands and Japan under bombing attacks. The other side features a message about the state of the Japanese military and the impending attacks on their Japanese homeland. The intent of this leaflet was to induce the surrender of Japanese troops. It is numbered "101-J-1". It is accompanied by an official description and translation of the text into English. This is one item from a scrapbook of propaganda leaflets and related materials that was compiled by the Psychological Warfare Branch of the Allied Forces in the Southwest Pacific Area during World War II. The scrapbook belonged to Colonel Karl F. Baldwin of the United States Army, who helped establish the propaganda program. It contains approximately 200 pieces of propaganda, mostly in Japanese, that were intended for distribution in the Philippines, Japan, and other nearby areas.
