(Subject: World War II - Pacific) Pyschological Warfare against the Japanese Army in the Southwest Pacific. The author makes a strong case for the importance of psychological warfare (Psywar) and marshals evidence that Japanese military indoctrination was not proof against demoralization and the survival instinct. The Pacific War was particularly brutal, racist on both sides, and often fought without regard to so-called civilized norms of warfare. She focuses on combat propaganda conducted in support of military operations and intended to demoralize Japanese combatants, and she examines the objectives of the psywar campaign.
