Logistics

Published 2009

Victory is won or lost in battle, but all military history shows that adequate logistics support is essential to the winning of the battle. In World War II, 16.1 million men and women served in the U.S. Armed Forces. For every ONE who served in combat, TEN served in a support role.

The third volume of William L. McGee’s series is dedicated to the men and women – military and civilian – who served in logistical support roles for the front line combat personnel in WWII. The story of the vital logistics services supporting the U.S. Armed Forces operating in the Pacific is told—proof positive that warfare is not all blazing combat.

Now under one cover, an edited collection of the best works by noted military historians on the importance of military logistics in WWII. The editors profile many of the major components that made up the “Pacific express” including:

  • U.S. Navy Seabees and U.S. Marine Corps Engineers who built the Advance Bases.

  • U.S. Navy crews who manned the amphibious force and Fleet’s floating mobile Service Squadrons throughout the vast reaches of the Pacific.

  • U.S. Merchant Marine and U.S. Naval Armed Guard who manned and defended the thousands of War Shipping Administration cargo ships, transports, and tankers to “Deliver the goods!”

  • U.S. Army and civilian (civil service) Transportation Corps personnel who operated most of the Army’s large and small vessels, but were seldom covered by the consumer-oriented media during WWII.

  • U.S. Coast Guardsmen who manned hundreds of U.S. Army and Navy long-haul vessels and thousands of battle-loaded amphibious landing ships and craft.
