RECENT AND RECOMMENDED
 
 ————— 
WHY FRANCE LOST THE WAR 
 
 By A. Reithinger 
 Veritas Press, 1940, $1.25Written early in the year, prior to the Norwegian campaign,this translation of a German book maintains that France canno longer be considered a world power, regardless of theoutcome of the war, because the decline in her population andthe weakness of her economic position automatically relegateher to a secondary status. This reviewer recalls that Prussiaitself, with the smallest and poorest population in Europe,nevertheless became a great power, and therefore believes thatthe point is still debatable.
M-DAY, IF WAR COMES, WHAT YOUR GOVERNMENT PLANS FOR YOU
 
 By Donald Edward Keyhoe
 E. P. Dutton, 1940, $1.00This is a somewhat sketchy picture of mobilization. It is of interest to army officers as an example of a method of  presentation in popular form of the basic features of themobilization plan.
THE HUNTING RIFLE
 
 By Col. Townsend Whelen
 Stackpole Sons, 1940, $4.75Here is a book for the rifle sportsman, which has been givenvery favorable reviews lately, and deservedly so. Manyenthusiasts, from squirrel hunters to those who stalk theAlaskan brown bears, are imperfectly acquainted with thecharacteristics of modern weapons, and consequently fail toget the most out of their hobby. Colonel Whelen has performed a valuable service in making available in one permanent volume all one needs to know concerning themodern hunting rifle, its accessories, and the ammunitionwhich it fires. The sportsman who contemplates junking that"trusty old fowling piece" and buying what he has had hisheart set on for lo! these many years, will find real help inCol. Whelen's book. He can obtain here unbiased informationas to what type of action, what caliber, what sightingequipment, and what loads will best suit his purpose. This isKephart brought up to date; and it describes only the finest(thought not necessarily the most expensive) rifles.

.Stackpole Sons, 1940, $2.50This novel deals with the experiences of an American infantryregiment in the Great War, from the training camps in theUnited States to the front in France, ending with the Army of Occupation on the Rhine. The author was both Assistant Chief of Staff, G-5 (Training) of the A. E. F. and commandinggeneral, 10th Infantry Brigade (5th Division) during the war,and he has obviously drawn on his own wide experience inwriting the book. The last chapter is a rousing appeal for isolationism, warning Americans to keep out of European wars. —————
