9781473899049: Logistics in the Falklands War: A Case Study in Expeditionary Warfare

While many books have been written on the Falklands War, this is the first to focus on the vital aspect of logistics. The challenges were huge; the lack of preparation time; the urgency; the huge distances involved; the need to requisition ships from trade to name but four.

After a brief discussion of events leading to Argentina's invasion the book describes in detail the rush to re-organise and deploy forces, despatch a large task force, the innovative solutions needed to sustain the Task Force, the vital staging base at Ascension Island, the in-theatre resupply, the set-backs and finally the restoring of order after victory.

Had the logistics plan failed, victory would have been impossible and humiliation inevitable, with no food for the troops, no ammunition for the guns, no medical support for casualties etc.

The lessons learnt have never been more important with increasing numbers of out-of-area operations required in remote trouble spots at short notice. The Falklands experience is crucial for the education of new generations of military planners and fascinating for military buffs and this book fills an important gap.

About the Author:

Ken Privratsky spent 33 years in the U. S. Army before retiring in 2002 as a Major General. He served as an infantry platoon leader in combat in Vietnam and commanded units at all levels, including two worldwide joint organizations as a general officer. For the majority of his military career he specialized in logistics. He was responsible for the Army’s strategic mobility program in the Pentagon. He led supply distribution for the U. S. Department of Defense worldwide. In his final assignment he was responsible for surface transportation and military ocean terminal operations for Department of Defense worldwide. He has been awarded the highest service decorations from Department of Defense and the U. S. Army and received personal recognition from the Vice President of the United States for his revolutionary changes to military distribution operations. He was inducted into the Defense Logistics Hall of Fame in 2004. After leaving the military, Privratsky entered the ocean shipping business with the largest domestic shipping company in the U. S. He became responsible for operations spanning the Pacific, including terminal operations in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam and along the west coast of the U. S. He retired from industry in 2010. Ken has earned graduate degrees in English, Business, and Military Art and Science. He was a National Security Affairs Fellow at the Hoover Institution of War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University. As a young officer, he graduated from the Army’s Airborne and Ranger Schools.

Review:

“... should be mandatory reading for all those who will partake in instituting preparations, as well as implementation, of future ADF amphibious operations. “ (Journal of Military and Veteran's Health)
