Riassunto: In World War II, the United States mounted a military effort of unprecedented magnitude and complexity. With more than 11 million soldiers to be armed, fed, clothed, and transported, logistics - including the design, procurement, distribution, and movements of supplies and the transportation of troops - became big business. General Brehon B. Somervell, a brilliant military-industrial manager, led the army's wartime logistical operation. Sometimes criticized as a big spender, he understood well the decisive role of superior material and mobility. As America's chief wartime logistician, he demanded ample supplies for the troops, at the right place at the right time. A graduate of West Point, Somervell served his country in both the military and civilian arenas. As head of the Works Progress Administration in New York City, he won recognition for his effective management; later, he helped prepare the nation for war by building training camps and munitions plants. At the height of his career, as head of the War Department Services of Supply - known later as the Army Service Forces - Somervell was responsible for the supply and administration of the army within the United States and the support of troops overseas.

Ohl baseshis study on exhaustive research in the National Archives, on manuscript collections, and on oral histories and interviews. Supplying the Troops will appeal especially to those interested in military logistics and history, economic history, and the World War II era.
