This Is Your Cue

Date made: 1941

Artist: Miller, Harold 'Dusty'

Description: Satirical cartoon drawn for Isle of Man Times newspaper. Shows Hitler pushing Emperor Hirohito of Japan on stage as Mussolini is egged off. One of the eggs appears to read 'Genoa' which had just been attacked by allied aircraft.

This cartoon appeared on 15 February 1941. By this stage in the war Japan had signed alliances with Germany and Italy, but was not yet involved in the fighting, whereas Italy had already suffered defeats at British hands in North Africa (particularly loss of Tobruk). The cartoon implies that Hitler will use Japan as he has Italy.
