History by Carl Mydans
  The newly created "Japanese Police Force" maneuvers in the snow in Hokkaido. The American-inspired Japanese Constitution renounced war, but in 1951, at the urging of the United States, Japan began building an army.
 Following the war, Carl stayed on in Japan covering the occupation. He later became the first and only photographer to be named a bureau chief for the TIME LIFE NEWS SERVICE.
