Simply the best,
This review is from: British Logistics on the Western Front: 1914-1919 (Hardcover)
Many moons and stars have I seen. Few of them have been planets. Rarely have I felt like stout Cortez.
But this is a brilliant book.
It will not give you the information to create a tactical game of logistics on the western front. Should you wish to do that, still apply for the original sources.
But, should you wish to have an in depth analysis of how it worked, why it failed, how it was fixed, just how flexible in it's choice of bods the establishment was, how it won, lost again (March 1918 by now) and won, finally to fall over a bit once it was all (hopefully) over, then read this book.
It lacks the plot of a thriller but makes up for it with a continuous theme - the cold facts of Kiplng's six honest serving men, the what, why and when, and how and who and where.
I am very impressed with this book. It is not all that I wanted when I bought it from the title alone; it is however more than I could reasonably have expected.
