“This book published in magazine format is designed to give as clear and simple a picture as possible of a stark reality of the suffering of the world through aggression and oppression by those nations who joined together in the Axis to destroy the liberty and democracy everywhere for their own selfish interest. The work will have achieved its purpose if its has widened and deepened the consciousness of the March of Evil and has confirmed us in resolving to halt it for ever”.
