Description: The Air Force Journal of Logistics is the professional logistics publication of the Air Force. We provide an open forum for presenting research, innovative thinking, and ideas and issues of concern to the Air Force and civilian logistics communities. It is distributed worldwide and reaches all segments of the Air Force and nearly all levels of the Department of Defense and US government. You'll also find the Journal is read by foreign military forces in 26 countries, people in industry, and students at universities with undergraduate and graduate programs in logistics.

Description: Old Lessons, New Thoughts is a collection of seven essays or articles that lets the reader examine logistics and technological lessons from history that are particularly applicable in today's transformation environment. Understanding the elements of military power requires more than a passing knowledge of logistics and how it influences and, in many cases, dictates strategy and tactics. An understanding of logistics comes principally from the study of history and the lessons history offers. Throughout the history of warfare, crucial strategic and tactical decisions were often direct reflections of the logistical needs and capabilities of opposing armies. There is no reason to suspect that this will change in the future, and the literature addressing it is still sparse and scattered. Two major themes underpin and serve to validate the need for the study of logistics history. First, it is abundantly clear that the availability of raw logistical capability--the appropriate kinds of war materiel produced and moved rapidly to where needed--has done much to determine the potential for victory or defeat throughout military history. This has been true across the spectrum of conflict--from wars of worldwide magnitude to conflicts of significantly more limited scale.
