According to UN advance information, "Tokio [sic], The Desolate City." As Yanks occupy the Japanese capital they see that Tokio is a ruined city. The antiquated Jap fire-fighting equipment was unable to save immense areas which were burned out by fire bomb raids. Yet, most of the buildings in the Mikado's compound are untouched.
