The practice of logistics is as old as the first hunting expedition in prehistory; the logistical historical stream continued through the travels of Bronze Age salesmen, who peddled the products of their home regions in distant lands, to the traveling fairs that were so important to the revival of trade in medieval times. Logistics, as a career field, is relatively new in point of historical time, stimulated if not born in the massive movements of personnel and materiel during Word Ward II.
In view of the growing importance of logistics and management, a need exists for a volume intended to come on the market at the introductory level without trying to touch all the bases in a single, weighty, encyclopedic tome....The material contained in this book is self-sustaining and requires no particular background in other technical areas.
