Overview
 
Nicolas Aubin. American logistics in France and in Germany, 1944-45. During World War II advances against the enemy, Allied troops often ran painfully short of supplies. Armies without food or medical supplies and guns without bullets would soon be brought to its knees. To ensure that the Americans and the Allies were well supplied with everything they needed, the Red Ball Express was created.
This book describes accurately all the logistical means implemented by the U.S.military, from Liberty ships to railways through the floating ports and GMC trucks and is the first substantial book devoted to the 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.
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. For modelers there are dozens of photos which will give ideas for dioramas and detailing of trucks and loads. For the historian it gives a much deeper look at the huge logistical issues faced by the Allied armies during the period and for anyone interested in transport generally, some good lessons to be learned about management of a supply chain. 224 pages.
