US Army Global Logistics Challenges and Strategy at the beginning of World War II

United States Army in World War II series
Discusses United States Army logistics, primarily of ground forces, in its relation to global strategy. Told from the viewpoint of the central administration in Washington, Joint and Combined Chiefs of Staff,the War Department General Staff, and the Services of Supply. This volume is the first part of a two volume set on this topic. Logistial tasks account in large measure for the enormous administrative machinery that the Army developed in the course of the war. The demand for service troops seemed insatiable and required repeated revisions of the troop basis. The most persistent theme is the chronic, pervasive competition for resources -- a completition that was scarcely diminished even when the war machine began to pour out those resources with a prodigality the world had not seen before this time.

Military soldiers and students studying world history and World War II history may be interested in this historical accounts of the global logistics and strategy that the U.S. Amy encountered at the beginning of World War II.
