Up for auction is a nice 1935 copy of the ''Two down, one to go'' rare pamphlet No. 21-31, Washington D. C. U.S. Government Prining Office, (1945). First edition. Original stapled wraps, illustrated with a reproduction of a caricature by Arthur Szyk of Hitler, Mussolini, and Emperor Hirohito. Szyk crossed out the faces of Hitler and Mussolini with red X's, hence the title that only Japan remains left to be beaten. Illustrated with six partly colored reproductions of drawings (artist unknown). "Now, together with our allies we shall concentrate devastating power against this treacherous enemy, and rid the world permanently of this menace of barbarism. We can do this if every American, in or out of Uniform, keeps in heart and mind the plain fact that we will not have won this war, nor can we enjoy any peace until Japan is completely crushed. G. C. Marshall. Chief of Staff, United States Army." Interestingly, the date printed in the pamphlet is 28 April 1945, two days prior to Hitler's suicide. Very slight creasing on wraps, otherwise in near fine condition.
Book was published to get more USA soldiers in the service against Japan.
