LOGISTICS AND THE FAILURE OF THE BRITISH ARMY IN AMERICA, 1775-1783., Bowler, R. Arthur.

Author Name    Bowler, R. Arthur.

Title   LOGISTICS AND THE FAILURE OF THE BRITISH ARMY IN AMERICA, 1775-1783.

Publisher    Princeton University Press, Princeton, New Jersey, (1975).

Seller ID   16835

290 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "....draws on the remarkably complete records of the British government offices concerned with logistics during the Revolutionary War and army service departments such as commissary, quartermaster and barrackmaster generals to provide a full account of the everyday life of the British army and an accurate record of how logistical and administrative problems in America affected the course of the war. His study makes it clear that the British army in America depended almost entirely on Britain for supplies, and that for six years inadequate and sometimes corrupt administration seriously affected the course of operations and the morale of the troops. An organization capable of supplying the army was not developed until 1781, too late to change the outcome of the war."
