1938 “What War Means” was a propaganda book written to fight against the enemy(Japan)
Relation with publicity department of Chinese Nationalist Party
In “An Overview of Propaganda Operations of the International Information Division of the Central Propaganda Bureau of the Nationalist Party from 1938 to April 1941” held in the Guomindang Historical Documents Archive in Taipei, it is clearly mentioned that “What War Means” was a propaganda book written to fight against the enemy, edited and printed by this organization. From this fact, Shudo Higashinakano agrees with the view of Minoru Kitamura and Akira Suzuki, that Timperley’s book was a propaganda of Chinese Nationalist Party.[4] On the other hand, Hisashi Watanabe claims that Timperley had yet no connection with Chinese Nationalist Party at the time, criticizing Minoru Kitamura. On 16 April 2015, Sankei Shimbun reported the discovery of documents detailing Timperley’s activities as the head of the UK Branch of the International Information Division (London), which strongly supports his involvement in the propaganda operation.[5]
In 1939, he gave up journalism and served for the Chinese Ministry of Information, as an advisor.
