Abstract:

The need for unambiguous communication among all nations is critical in the world today. In the field of Foreign Military Sales this need is most prevalent in the development of support documents, from FMS Procedure Manuals to Technical Orders, that must be clearly understood by both the United States and the allied nations. Experience has shown that narrative English is not meeting this need. This thesis demonstrates a better way to write International Logistics Documents. Actual logistics documents were used as the basis for testing. United States and allied personnel representing over twelve countries assisted in obtaining the thesis conclusions. Author
