Thank you so much. It's strange because the person on the photos is the same, I don't know the purpose to write different names on the back.

It is an American propaganda leaflet for Japanese people. It says that Japanese people should be free from Gunbatsu (military clique).

Germany surrendered. Roosevelt said that the unconditional surrender means the disarmament of army, never means the annihilation or enslavement of Japanese people.
