Reports on the testimony of Major General Ryusuke Tanaka who asserted that he told Tojo that "while Your Excellency seems to have the feeling of certainty of a Japanese victory, I think it is hopeless." Tanaka also stated that he had asked Shigenori Togo to "start a political movement to oust Tojo" but he did not testify as to the outcome of the request. Other topics discussed during his testimony include the size and effectiveness of the Japanese military.
