WHAT HAS HAPPENED to the
Japanese war effort? Here it is now exactly a year since the last Japanese major operation * attack on Midway June J > Th* large Japanese army and navy have done nothing momentous in 12 months. Particularly, Tokyo has failed to develop any of the promised and threatened lines of attack
It has not reinforced its occupational array in China sufficiently to start a general drive. Its big army in Manchuria has been sitting on the Soviet border inactive.
Indeed, this army disregarded the golden opoortunity presented last summer when its ally Hitler was hammering at Stalingrad, and the Soviets were so hard pressed that Stalin had to withdraw troops from the Manchukuo front.
