About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Mobility, Support, Endurance: A Story of Naval Operational Logistics in the Vietnam War, 1965-1968 In narrating the naval history of a war, one approach open to a historian is to record the general story of naval operations, then complement the main history with works dealing with specialized fields. The Naval History Division plans to follow this approach in the case of the Vietnam War, focusing the Division s efforts primarily on an account of naval operations but accompanying the major history with publications in limited fields deserving of treatment beyond that to be given in the main work. This was the practice, as it finally evolved, in World War II. One of the volumes that complemented Samuel Eliot Morison s magnificent multi - volume History of United States N anal Operations in World War II was Beans, Ballets, anal Black Oil. Valuable insights on the logistic aspects of the war at sea were provided by the author, Rear Admiral W. R. Carter. Not only had he served as Commander Naval Bases, South Pacific, during critical phases of the Solomons campaign of 1942 and 1943, but also later when the United States naval offensive across the Pacific was in full swing, he had organized and commanded Service Squadron Ten, the mobile base organization so essential to sustaining the massive operations of the Third and Fifth Fleets in the violent final phase of the war. Widely used as a reference work, Beans, Ballets, and Black Oil did much to impart an under standing and appreciation of mobile logistic support throughout the Navy, and to keep the basic concepts alive in the post - war years. To Admiral Carter goes a considerable amount of the credit for the continuing emphasis which the Navy placed on the maintenance of its capabilities for mobile logistic support in the active and inactive ?eets, on the continuance of a reasonable state of readiness in this important area, and on the refining of some of the techniques involved.
