Can anyone come up with an alternative proof of the following?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If H, a subgroup of G, has index [G]=p where p is the smallest prime dividing |G|, the H is normal in G.

I'm already aware of one proof, given here

(page 3 - question #3)

but I'm hoping to find maybe a more straightforward proof.
