The sentence structure: (A) was of (B).


Example: Japan's image in the world was of an economic juggernaut.

A=Japan's image in the world

B= an economic juggernaut


Question: what's the difference between these two sentence structures:

Strucutre 1: (A) was of (B) 

Structure 2: (A) was (B)


Can't we drop out "of" and say: Japan's image in the world was an economic juggernaut.
