This film was cobbled together from Japanese newsreels and propaganda films, to boost home-front morale, filmed during World War Two. It shows the early conquests of Japan, beginning with the sneak attack and bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and the declaration of war against the United States by Tojo. It includes archive footage of the bombings of MAnila and the Philippines, the Japanese invasion of Manila with paratroopers and a visit to the captured islands by Tojo. Footage used in this compilation film also included the bombing and surrender of Corregidor, the infamous Bataan Death March, the bombing of Hong Kong and the invasion of Burma, and the jungle warfare, leading to, when the tide of the war shifted in favor of the Allies, young Japanese pilots being sent out on suicide missions.
