front cover of pacific express

A new book, PACIFIC EXPRESS - The Critical Role of Military Logistics in World War II, by William L. McGee, examines the vital but little-appreciated value of logistics in waging and winning World War II with an emphasis on the Pacific theater. Chapter 5 of the book is devoted specifically to the role of the U.S. merchant marine and the U.S. Navy Armed Guard. This is the third in a series of books about amphibious operations in the South Pacific during World War II.
