Aubin.  During WW II, advances toward the enemy often ran allied troops painfully short of supplies. Armies without food to feed the soldiers or medical supplies to mend the injured as well as guns without bullets would soon bring the best trained Army to its knees. To ensure that the Americans and the allies were well supplied with everything they needed to advance against the enemy, the Red Ball Express was created. This book describes accurately all the logistical means implemented by the U.S. Army Liberty ships to the railway through the floating ports and GMC trucks and is the first substantial book devoted to American logistical effort during the Second World War, offering detailed descriptions of logistical methods, tactics, techniques. Highly illustrated throughout with a multitude of archive photos, maps and tables of data this makes an excellent reference on the whole logistics arrangements used in NW Europe, by road, rail, and towards the end, by air. Dozens of photos which will give ideas for dioramas and detailing of trucks and loads. 224 pages.
