Logistics is the lifeblood of military power. Success at the operational level requires the integration of logistics capabilities contributed by all entities involved in military affairs, to include service, coalition-partner, governmental, private/commercial, and host-nation capabilities.
Alexander the Great noted with dark humor the importance and complexity of logistics during his campaigns of conquest nearly 2,400 years ago: “My logisticians are a humorless lot…they know if my campaign fails, they are the first ones I will slay.” Alexander’s ability to move a force from Greece to India and back, conquering adversaries in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia and leaving functioning outposts along the way, attests to his logistical prowess.
