t-jpc4091910 Sugoroku propaganda history game showing the japanese invasion of Korea and Taiwan as well as the Russo - Japanese war. Size 78.5x54cm. Shows the siege of Ulsan, the breaking of the Hyeonmumun Gate at Pyongyang, the Battle of Tsushima and the Nuyts Incident in Taiwan. 

Note: The Nuyts Incident: The already troubled relations with Japanese merchants in Tayouan took a turn for the worse in 1628 when tensions boiled over. The merchants, who had been trading in Taiwan long before the Dutch colony was established, refused to pay Dutch tolls levied for conducting business in the area, which they saw as unfair. Nuyts exacted revenge on the same Hamada Yahei who he blamed for causing the failure of the Japanese embassy by impounding his ships and weapons until the tolls were paid. However, the Japanese were still not inclined to pay taxes, and the affair came to a head when Hamada took Nuyts hostage at knifepoint in his own office. Hamada's demands were for the return of their ships and property, and for safe passage to return to Japan. These requests were granted by the Council of Formosa (the ruling body of Dutch Formosa), and Nuyts' son Laurens was taken back to Japan as one of six Dutch hostages. Laurens died in Omura prison on 29 December 1631. During the Japanese era in Taiwan (1895–1945), school history textbooks retold the hostage-taking as the Nuyts Incident (noitsu jiken?), portraying the Dutchman as a "typical arrogant western bully who slighted Japanese trading rights and trod on the rights of the native inhabitants".

propaganda poster

Turkish propaganda poster showing the victorious Turkish army defeating the North Korean army at the Battle of Kunuri.  There is an inset photo of General Tahsin Yazici.  He commanded the Turkish Brigade during the Korean War.  Though it was initially placed as reserve for the U.S. 8th Army, the collapse of the front in the face of massive Chinese attacks on 26 November 1950, meant that it soon found itself in the thick of battle.  The actions of the Turks at the Battle of Kunuri saved the Americans and General Yazici received the silver star as a result SOLD
