This book was written when Japan had already annexed much of China, but before its forays into Southeast Asia. Nevertheless the author expected the British, Dutch, French and US colonies in the area would be Japan's next target. So in 1940 he spent two and a half month in Malaya, Borneo, the Dutch East Indies and the Philippines attempting to gauge their preparedness. This book is his report of what he found. Good Hardback. Reprint. Originally published in 1941. 322 pages with an index.
