Japanese propaganda booklet published to encourage the population to increase domestic saving and production as a part of the war effort. Illustrated throughout with manga cartoons illustrating how to save and produce more, to enable the factories to manufacture more weapons. Instead of arousing anxiety, the manga shown here gives the propaganda information through light hearted images, showing how easy and achievable the goal is.
The lower cover features a cartoon showing President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill running away from a Japanese bomb. Another cartoon (see the illustration) shows how to defeat the Western cultural influence with the Japanese spirit. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 170414).
