Surviving your time as a military logistician

Logistics in War

The military logistician must also clearly identify risks and threats to ensure that orders/instructions are made on an informed basis.

‘The furthest, the weakest’ – how logistics creates national power

Logistics in War

Theorists, writers, military professionals and many others are looking for indicators of strategic activity, some obvious and some not so conspicuous.

From Sound Military Decision , United States Naval College, 1942. Wars are usually longer than expected and are rarely fought in accordance with the plans made by military planners at their outset. 2] This creates the situation where the really difficult part of war is not prepared for – how a military organisation likely left in dysfunction and ruin at war’s outset – recovers, reconstitutes and responds.

Hoping and planning for the best: understanding war without logistics

Logistics in War

In ‘Burning incense at a new altar’ and closing Logistics In War for 2017, I reflected on the state of interest in military logistics and why it was important to the profession of arms right now. As military professionals that continue to ‘burn incense at Clausewitz’s altar’, our continued emphasis on the ‘role of courage, leadership and the arts of command’ overlooked the strain such principles had been enduring since the first half of the twentieth century.

All logistics processes at the strategic level are joint; moreover they require military and public service input.

Logistics and the strangling of strategy

Writers in strategic theory have long known this, although few read works of military theory beyond the most appealing components. While military staff college students and university graduates world-wide know of Clausewitz’s ‘trinity’, or could debate ‘ad nauseum’ the meaning of ‘centre of gravity’, it is rare to see a reflection of his chapter on supplying war and its influence on strategy.

Preparing for preparedness – how should we begin?

Logistics in War

Of course additional funding and attention can improve the capability and capacity of any military force to sustain itself in peace and on operations.

Part Two offered examples where militaries get it right, and a number of examples where events did not transpire as well as they might.

Limping to war

Logistics in War

The importance of a high-level of preparedness to a military is self-evident. An unprepared military offers political leaders few options, corrupts strategy, is inefficient and ineffective, and poses a national risk. The term ‘preparedness’, or those associated with it such as ‘readiness’, is never far from the vernacular of senior military leaders – and rightly so.

Decision-forcing cases for logistics: practicing logisticians to overcome ‘wicked problems’

Logistics in War

LIW Editorial – taking the national support base …. beyond the nation

Logistics in War

As a military logistician, the idea of integrating logistics as part of a coalition is hardly relevatory.

He promotes 20-30 minutes of reading in a day (or night) as part of a ‘consistent practice of self-study’. Reading about logistics, the difficulties encountered in sustaining and moving armies, should be part of this study.

With this in mind, I thought I should summarise what might be learned from what I feel are the most important works on military logistics.
