Transportation and Logistics: One Man’s Story published on

Authored by Center of Military History United States Army

Transportation and Logistics, which depicts the fortunes of a U.S. Army logistician in a time of upheaval and deals with the problems of moving troops and supplies to far theaters of war, may be read as a personal tract for the times as well as history. During his firsthand fighting experience in the Pacific and Asia as well as his high-level staff assignments in Europe and Washington, Jack C. Fuson grappled with fundamental issues of transportation and logistics and amassed a lifetime of knowledge in managing the arteries of war. Fuson presents vivid examples of the impact of military transportation on the prosecution of war, all the while reminding us that logistics is the true limitation on strategy and tactics. This incisive account offers many lessons for those concerned with logistic effectiveness and the requirements of mobility in an era of contingency operations.
