The Myth of the Militia: "I can stamp my foot and a million men will spring to arms overnight." The magnitude of the necessities for men to go to war. The truth that small, good armies have always defeated big, bad ones, with some examples. An historical and militaristic look at the development of civilization. The Allies' ill-preparation for war, and a brief review of how this war developed. Pausing to count our losses. The price the "Myth of the Militia" has cost and will cost before victory is achieved. Not being deceived about the road ahead before we occupy Berlin. The difficult road to Tokyo. Successes in preparing for war by the United States.
