KIRKUS REVIEW

Good though far from heartening- discussion of Japan, by a New York Times correspondent, a broad picture of the Japanese mind, plan, strength, war calculations. He shown Japan as independent of Hitler, basing plans on opportunism -- the Dutch East Indies Singapore, milway points, in order to dig in while the U. S. is partly occupied in the Atlantic. Their empire, from the Emperor who does not rule (he shows him a peace-loving, minded), to the army, chauvinistic, Nazi, which does rule. He does not underestimate their strength and concludes that it will be a long war.
