Professional studies

An old military adage is “amateurs study battles, professionals study logistics.” In light of that, some links and a homework assignment.

Pick one, print it out, and add your marginalia as you read through it. Consider the problems and opportunities raised for an army when its enemy is spread athwart and around the lines of supply. Then consider the problems and opportunities from the perspective of the other side.

The US Army’s Center for Military History is an excellent resource, especially in light of recent studies in Insurgency and Counterinsurgency.
