Abstract:

This research effort provides material for use in updating the book The Logistics of Waging War. This particular book gives a logistics overview of part American Military conflicts but had not been update since 1982. Our objective was to research the logistics aspects of the major military operations since 1982. These operations included Operation Urgent Fury in Grenada 1983, Operation Just Cause in Panama 1989, Operation Desert Shield in Saudi Arabia 1990, Operation Desert Storm in Iraq and Kuwait 1991, and Operation Desert Farewell in Saudi Arabia 1992. Also included in this study is a review of the Air Force logistics doctrine in light of United States military experience since 1982. This document had undergone several major changes and we attempted to bring these changes to light and show what if any impact could be expected as a result of the new revision. The bulk of our research effort concentrated on the Air Force logistics scenarios but we also included many examples from other services as well. A large collection of photographs have been included to help the readers gain a perspective of the many different areas that logistics cover
