ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Italian army comprises seven infantry divisions, one armored division and three Alpine brigades. But there is such an enormous gap between the Soviets' armed strength and the Italian that the juxtaposition becomes a deliberate falsification of the facts of power. Equally disingenuous is the omission of any mention of France. If Italy has more and better armed troops physically present, it will be because the French are still forced to pin down most of their men and material in Asia.
