Tanaka Memorial

This memorial is a fake account supposedly written by Japanese prime minister Tanaka Giichi and it details Japanese plans for world domination, which includes plans to take over the US, Russia, China and Europe. It has been proven to be fake but to this day, it is unclear whether the Tanaka Memorial was a piece of Soviet propaganda or a way for the Chinese to get support against Japan. It was also an instrument of the US war propaganda as a sort of Japanese equivalent of Mein Kamph.
