The authors, a pair of journalists, traveled to Japan, Shanghai and Nanking in China, Manila, Saigon, Malaya, Java, Singapore, Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland, Fiji, and Honolulu, before returning to America – one of the last civilian transports to reach the west coast before the war began. The authors describe conditions in each country visited, and provide a sense of the impending crisis about to strike. Included are 7 pages of maps.
