Source A

The invasion of Manchuria had two important side effects - putting aside for a moment its dreadful revelation that the League was powerless in the face of a determined aggressor.   First, it raised the prestige of the Japanese Army.   Second, it made it possible for the Army to pressurise the Japanese government to undertake a policy of armed expansion.

Tony Howarth, Twentieth Century History (1979)

A British secondary school textbook

Source B

America's consistent refusal to use nothing more than words in support of the League had shown just how toothless and helpless the international community was when it came to enforcing and upholding the peace.  A dangerous precedent had been set.

John Costello, The Pacific War (1981)

A British secondary school textbook

Source D

This cartoon of 1933, by the British cartoonist David Low, is entitled: 'The Doormat'.   It shows a Japanese soldier trampling all over the League, whilst League officials bow down before him and the British Foreign Secretary John Simon powders the League's nose using a 'Face-saving kit'.  

What is the cartoonist suggesting about the League...   the Japanese Army... John Simon and the other western diplomats?

Source E

This cartoon of 1933 shows a gun labelled 'Japan' blasting a hole through international agreements such as the Kellogg Pact and the League of Nations Covenant.   What is the cartoonist suggesting about Japan?
