Abstract:

The objective of this research was to develop a historical presentation of Air Force logistics since 1940. An extensive literature review coupled with disquisitions with prominent Air Force logisticians identified twenty-four topics which were considered important to a historical perspective of Air Force logistics. The Delphi technique was used to solicit expert opinion regarding the significance and relevance of those topics. Finally, over 600 primary and secondary supporting references were reviewed for inclusion in the presentation. The result was a topical bibliography of over 450 entries which describe the evolution of Air Force logistics since 1940.
