Abstract:

The essay explores the lessons learned and planning considerations of transportation logistics in Vietnam and relate their applicability to transportation planning and future operations in Europe. Basic problem areas and recommendations identified by the Joint Logistics Review Board JLRB and other writings on transportation in Vietnam are reviewed and lessons applicable to Europe are identified and described. Main emphasis is given to the crucial buildup period of any conflict when the initial shortages of logistics resources create most problems. Many of the lessons learned in Vietnam only reiterate lessons relearned while others provide a new dimension in our future thinking.
