Beschreibung

Drawing on a very wide range of unpublished and previously unexploited sources, Martin van Creveld examines the "nuts and bolts" of war. He considers the formidable problems of movement and supply, transportation and administration, often mentioned (but rarely explored) by the vast majority of books on military history. By concentrating on logistics rather than on the more traditional tactics and strategy, van Creveld is also able to offer an original reinterpretation of military history. First Edition Hb (1977): 0-521-21730-X FIrst Edition Pb (1979): 0-521-29793-1

Pressestimmen

'Military buffs, even those who disagree with the author's conclusions, will find this an original and stimulating work.' Business Week 'I recommend this work for every professional army officer, but particularly those in the operational field who are used to moving units with the stroke of a grease pencil.' Major Michael D. Krause, Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff 'Impeccable scholarship and major new interpretations characterize this work destined to become a classic in military history.' Technology and Culture 'This slim volume, unique of its kind, not only iterates the value of the study of logistics to the understanding of any war, any campaign, or any battle, but presents significant historical reinterpretations and revisions on practically every page.' The American Historical Review '... interesting ... makes a major contribution to the knowledge of a little researched aspect of warfare ... the time span covered by the book from the Marlborough campaign to Patton's advance is undoubtedly a tour de force.'
