CLOSE-UP OF
THE JAP
FIGHTING-MAN
LIEUTENANT
COLONEL
WARREN
J.

The
typical
Jap
isa
runt. Five
feet
three
inches tall,he weighs 118 pounds.Heisone
hundredpercent
literate.He
is
paid
$15.10 a
year,
or
$1.26a
month,
*
of
which sum
he
is
allowed
to
squander
91f2
cents
onhimself.
He
can
liveon a
handful of
rice
and
a
few
scraps of
dried
fish a day.
He
accepts
it
as
commonplace
to
march
30miles,
under
full
equipment,in
24
hours.He
usually
presents
a slovenly
appearance,
and
is no
great
shucks
on
pa
rade,
but
he
is one
of
the
toughest
fighting
men
inthe
worldtoday.
This
is
our
enemy.
It
willbe wise
for
us toknow
as
much
as
we
can about
this
half-savage
biped whose
bandy
legs
have
carriedthe
sun-burst
banner
of
conquest
over
a
quarter
of
the
globe,
from
the
icy
reaches
of theBering
Sea
to
theburning
sands
of
thesouthern
islands.
"To
know
oneself
and
the
enemy
is
the
secret
of victory," says
fivefoot-two
GeneralSadao Araki,
the
evil
genius of
Japan.Our
soldiers,
marines,
and
sailors
who
are
now
fighting
him
are
too
busy
taking the
Jap
apart
to
ask
how
he
is
put
to
gether.
But
we
at
home
can
know-and
should
know-just
what
kindof
fighting
animal
this
is
that
is
holding
the
world's longest
battle
line
,
from
Kiska to
Tulagi.
In
our
effort
to
know
allwe
canabout
our
enemy
we
are,
it
seems
to
me, justified
in giving
a
little
to
a psychological
study of
the
fellow we
are
fighting.
The security
of
nations, of
men,
of
phenomena,
racial
and
political, is,
after
all,
mainly
psychological.
Our
psychological
interest
per
haps
should be
our
dominating
interest
because
the
soul
of
man
is
his
greatest
part.
We
must
begin
any
psychological
study
of
the
Japanese
soldier
by
making
ourselves
awareof
*Based
on
present
yen valueof
23
cents. The
Jap
general
re
ceives 100
times
as
much
as
a
shimpei
orprivate.
