SUBJECT : Training in Mechanized Stock Accounting Systems in Army Logistics
Author: Herbert B. Leedy
Army experience with a small mechanized stock accounting system, the NCR 500, was studied with respect to personnel and training, in order to improve implementation of newer and more complex computer-based logistics systems. Officers and enlisted personnel in various duty positions connected with NCR 500 systems in four Far Eastern commands were interviewed. Data showed there had been a continual input of underskilled personnel into nearly all of the duty positions in the mechanized stock accounting system and at its major interfaces. Interviews indicated that efficiency would have been promoted by (a) integrating NCR 500 procedures and concepts with repair parts supply procedures and concepts, (b) a total systems approach to training, (c) upgrading the storage operation as well as the supporting stock accounting system, (d) assigning more well-qualified technical supply officers, and (e) training in the NCR 500 system for more noncommissioned officers with repair parts supply experience.

Perhaps no other field of military science is more misunderstood than logistics. Yet the means of supply, transportation, maintenance, and a variety of other supporting services frequently affect the daily lives of soldiers, the tactics of divisions, and the strategies of nations. Battles have been won, and wars have been lost, at least in part because of an army's ability to sustain itself in combat. U.S. Army Logistics, 1775-1992: An Anthology is designed to introduce to the soldier and the student of logistics a variety of topical selections that cover over 200 years of our army's history. In many cases, the reader may be intrigued by how often problems were repeated in different conflicts. There were remarkable similarities in transportation problems during the Mexican War and World War II, and comparable supply management difficulties arose during the Korean War and the war in Vietnam. How military personnel dealt with these issues and what successive generations learned from these experiences provide valuable insights for logisticians and commanders today. The selections for this anthology were made by Lt. Col. Charles R. Shrader, who was eminently qualified for this task. Blending his years of experience as an Army logistician and historian, Colonel Shrader has assembled a unique collection of essays that cover both the breadth and depth of Army logistics from the frozen hills of Valley Forge to the burning deserts of Southwest Asia. For the commander and the logistician, the soldier and the student, here is a book that will stimulate thought, encourage discussions, and provide perspective to an essential element of military science.

The most important work on Alexander the Great to appear in a long time. Engels uses all the archaeological work done in Asia in the past generation and makes it accessible. Careful analysis of terrain, climate, and supply requirements are throughout combined in a fashion to help account for Alexander's strategic decision in the light of the options open to him. The chief merit of this splendid book is the way in which it brings an ancient army to life, as it really was and moved: the hours it took for simple operations of washing and cooking and feeding animals; the train of noncombatants moving with the army--New York Review of Books.
The contributions of all Army professional logisticians are needed to make the
LOGISTICS OFFENSIVE a success. ... Undoubtedly, the military logistician, and
the American taxpayer alike, face the greatest challenge and opportunity yet ...
