A corollary to the Japanese opinion just cited would surely be that ordinary
troops could be used as air-landing troops with very little preliminary
instruction or practice in air movement. Japan has already considerably
outstripped Italy in air-borne capabilities. With her already large number of
parachutists, with her aggressive air force, with her still formidable navy, and,
above all, with her veteran, agile troops, Japan may be expected to try other and
possibly greater air-borne operations before she is brought to her knees.
