ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views against the universal military training program. The author states that the outstanding lesson taught by World War II is that the nation which commands the air is the nation that can rule the world. No complete victory can be won and garnered, as this war proves except by aerial warfare with hand-to-hand fighting to follow the devastation from the air. There must be time for the adoption of the best plan after all the lessons have been made known. The author has emphasized on the atomic bombs and like modern weapons by both arms of the military service, a navy that flies, with adequate military strength on land and sea.
