Abstract:

Although the role of the logistician in civil affairs and military governments CAMG is critical, little has been written on the logistical aspects of CAMG. The importance of CAMG logistics has been recognized in both the central European theater and in low intensity conflicts. However, military training does not ordinarily prepare the military logistician for CAMG. Hence, an analysis of the largest US CAMG effort World War II is an important step in preparing future logisticians to deal with such issues. This thesis examines the US logistics efforts under CAMG during World War II and immediately following the war. It looks at our efforts in North Africa, Italy, France, and Germany. Logistics lessons learned from these efforts are developed and related to current CAMG planning and training efforts. Keywords Logistics management, Civil affairs, Military government, Theses, History.
