Just remember this in any talk about gas! Tile wav it fan be most effectively used is by spray or bomb from airplanes We have both the planes and the gas to make such use extremely practicable if anyone opens up the subject The chai.ce that it will be used it therefore more remote than ever before.
Truth of the European situation is that we are lacing a difficult military pre Mein .n penetrating Hitler'.- continental fortress, as we are on the wrong ride cl the Alps in Italy. If Hitler invades he will make the battle for us on our own ground We san save both planes and pilots in this way. To invade therefore. Hitler would have to reach a point of de>perat;on that would first relieve him of his reason. He was probably just trying to scare the British into holding the largest possible force there, and thus keep It away frere southern Europe.
