United States Army Logistics, 1775-1992, is an annotated documentary history that covers the breadth and depth of Army logistics from the frozen hills of Valley Forge during the American Revolution to the burning deserts of Southwest Asia during the Persian Gulf crisis. How military personnel have dealt with logistical problems and what successive generations learned from these experiences provide valuable insights for logisticians and commanders today. Shrader's work will stimulate thought, encourage discussion, and provide perspective to an essential element of military science.
