Answers ou 1'ayu Two H the Allies seem to be waking a' "wailing" war on the Nazis, it may be because the British are extremely vulnerable and unprepared and the French cannot cxpccl lo lick Germany by an offensive. 'This is the conclusion drawn from Liddell Hart, eminent British historian and military authority, in his latest book, "The Defense of Britain," jusl published by Random House. A combination of factors adversely affect Britain at the outset of the European war, Hart declares.

Finally, there is the relative unprc- pardncss of the French, particularly from an offensive viewpoint. Time Is Weapon in This Wai- True, says Hart, the Allies are arming today at a tremendous rate. They may hope to offset the German strength, even surpass it. Meanwhile, here are some of the factors in Ihe British picture as Hart sees them. "There is now," says Hart, "a serious threat of a new kind of invasion (in Britain) by 'ground forces,' though not by an 'army.' "In the Russian maneuvers of 1936 a force of 1200 men, together with 150 'machine guns and 18 light field guns was carried 10 miles by troop-carrying aircraft and dropped on an aerodrome behind (be enemy's front.
