Abstract:

In this monograph, by analyzing the UN, NATO and the US Armys evolving Modular Logistics Doctrine, the author integrates the key areas from each doctrine into a multinational logistics joint task force MLJTF organization. The MLJTF is a separate logistics joint task force whose commander reports to the CJTF commander, and is responsible for executing, synchronizing, and coordinating theater logistics during a given stability operation. By analyzing UN, NATO and future US modular logistics doctrine, the author concludes that, regardless of current US title 10 and coalition national authority constraints, commanders and logisticians must organize the optimal logistics organization that provides the CJTF commander a clear picture of logistics in his JOA. Properly resourced with joint and multinational resources, the MLJTF could be tailored to support future small or large scale stability operations.
