(4.5 stars; 3 reviews)

In three parts, from Physical Culture magazine, July - September, 1911. In this story, the author warns of the coming of a world war between Japan and U.S. While the Japanese have a superior society, they suffer from food shortages and over-population so go to war with the U.S., who is plagued by a society of ill health and habit. Some predictions are remarkably accurate. The story itself was commissioned by Bernarr Macfadden, who was an early proponent of health and fitness in the U.S. and founded the magazine publisher McFadden Publications. - Summary by Kate Follis (1 hr 48 min)
