This war which has cast its shadow over all the world seems to get darker each day. The wickedness of man is great. The atrocities committed by Germany and Japan beggar description. Millions of innocent people have been killed in cold blood, who were not in any sense engaged in this wicked conflict. Surely there will come a day of retribution.
