Description

This volume is the first in a series which will record the experiences of the Quartermaster Corps in World War II. Primarily, this volume relates the story of Quartermaster supply during World War II, a phase of the broader subject of military supply which has been much neglected in the past in favor of the more colorful and dramatic combat history. As the main function of the Corps, supply operations included the development of Quartermaster items, the estimation of requirements, the procurement of clothing, equipment, subsistence, and general supplies, and their storage and distribution. These aspects of the supply process are analyzed in this volume and set against the background of organizational changes in the Office of The Quartermaster General and in the field.

Audience

This series will appeal to students of military affairs, particularly those in staff and command positions, with the vastness and complexity of the activity involved in equipping and maintaining troops in the field. In addition, this may be a valuable resource for historians and current members of the military.
