Singapura em poder dos japoneses

DESCRIPTION: Folding German propaganda poster from WWII related to the fall of Singapore, once thought to be the "Gibraltar of the East", to the Japanese in February 1942. This broadside propaganda poster was produced by the German Army's Department of Wehrmacht Propaganda to mock the British for their failure to protect Singapore from Japanese attack.

In "Singapura em poder dos japoneses" four views show Japanese soldiers stalking through the jungle and marching in formation with tanks, and Japanese warplanes strafing the airport. Inset map at center shows the supply lines from the Allies to Singapore interrupted or cut (shows scissors) and numerous British and American bases captured throughout the South China Sea , the Philippines, and Malaya.

At bottom: "A castello forte britanico na Grande Asia foi desbarratado Churchill e Roosevelt tambem ali perderam a jogo" reflecting the magnitude and impact of the defeat.
