Riassunto: The book does more than recall events related to the author's work. It records the level of readiness of our country to face military challenges over the major part of the 20th century until the present. The lack of foresight from our leaders and their poor understanding of the airplane as a weapon got us in trouble before we entered World War II. A crippling economic depression had the nation in despair and was wrecking Europe when the American people united to equip our armed forces and won a victory that was almost lost.
During World War I poison gas was surprisingly used against our unprepared Army. That lesson prompted the manufacture of defensive equipment and such a large inventory of mustard gas, that gas warfare was not attempted by anyone in World War II. We added to that visible stockpile of chemical ammunition with nerve gas and now it is being eliminated. Our nation again will be as poorly prepared as at World War I.
The most recent transfer of Research and Development funds to support disposal of chemical weapons portends a risky course of action that will, hopefully, attract attention of responsible parties in charge of our security.
Sinossi: The United States slept for a decade, awakened by war to see an unstable world and go into action. They stood with winners at the end but are nodding again.
