448 pp, small 4to (10 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0850526256 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions, maps, colour plates. "This is the story of one Corps and its Predecessors, which provided the British Army with m any of the essential elements for its logistic support over 200 years. Although it is primarily concerned with the activities of this one Corps in its varying significant roles, and its regimental life, the book gives an insight into the m u c h w i d e r picture of overall logistic support by many others necessarily concerned in the complex process of sustaining the Army in peace and war. Within a worldwide military and political framework, with widely contrasting settings, it a ls o hi gh l ig ht s th e problems in achieving the balance between political constraints and meeting operational requirements. Additionally, it illustrates the extent to which military Commanders' decisions can influence the success or failure of mil it ary op er ati ons b y t he right or wrong appreciation, selection and utilization of the appropriate logistic support. Covering the period that it does, it traces the development of logistic support from its simplest forms, to the wide ra nge of soph isti cat ed l and, se a an d a ir facilities required to meet the needs of the modern mobile and high-tech Army. How well the Royal Corps of Transport and its Predecessors met the challenges during their lifetime and played their proud par t i n hel ping to d evelo p the hig hly s ucce ssful logistics system that the British Army now possesses can be judged from their history related in this book."
