But He Muffed It!

Tokyo -- Former Premier Hideki Tojo slumps unconscious in his chair after he attempted to commit suicide in his suburban home on September 11. Blood bubbles from the gaping pistol wound in his abdomen. Tojo, slated for possible arrest as a war criminal, shot himself while American officers waited to take him to MacArthur's headquarters. (1945)
