APPROACH TO BATTLE by Major Leonard H. Nason


Email this review


Nason feels that at this eleventh hour we are facing war with ""a feather duster in one hand, and another on order"". He bases his findings on his experiences during the last war, his observations in this, and the manoeuvres recently on view at Ogdensburg. He shows how easy invasion is. He explains that we should be training for war strength, not peace strength. He emphasizes over and over the necessity for a completely mobile army, -- food, water, equipment, communication. He feels that there has been no real progress in our air force, either in men or planes; no progress towards mechanization; and it is a sorry picture he paints. Brief military pamphlet which is designed to unsettle anyone who reads it. As a radio commentator his words carry weight with a wider audience than the average army man could command. Let's hope he is proved wrong before publication date. A lot can happen in two months.
