This issue features articles relating to the Japanese invasion of China: "The Conquest of Asia." A first section addresses the First Sino-Japanese War of 1894, with a color foldout presentation of Japanese color prints from that era: "Japan's first conquest of China was celebrated by a Japanese publisher named Sekiguchi in 1895 with a collection of war prints. They are reproduced on the following pages in the original folding form. Since Sekiguchi had no idea what the 1895 Peace Conference would look like, he borrowed a print of an 1885 Conference to suggest it." This is followed by a three page photographic essay: "The Japanese Army Slogs Down Asia on Schedule Time." The cover photograph of a Japanese soldier is entitled: "Fatalist with Machine Gun."
