Full Description:

Despite the conclusions of two generations of historians, at the outset of World War II the U.S. Army was profoundly unprepared for war. After years of interwar neglect, it faced enormous challenges in mobilization, training, deployment, and operations. Even late in the war, U.S. troops were often undersupplied and the Germans often had the technological edge. Drawing on his expertise as a logistics specialist and nearly a decade of original research, Miller tells the remarkable story of the Army's transformation and change facing an all-or-nothing campaign against a well-prepared enemy. This groundbreaking work that will reset the historical framework for comparison of U.S. and German performance over the course of the European campaign. This book is published in cooperation with the Association of the United States Army.

Edward G. Miller is a retired Army officer and designated military historian.  His previous book was A Dark and Bloody Ground--The Hutgen Forest and the Roer River Dams 1944-1945.
