Logistics in the Falklands War by Kenneth L Privratsky( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While many books have been written on the Falklands War, this is the first to focus on the vital aspect of logistics. The challenges were huge; the lack of preparation time; the urgency; the huge distances involved; the need to requisition ships from trade to name but four. After a brief discussion of events leading to Argentina's invasion the book describes in detail the rush to re-organise and deploy forces, despatch a large task force, the innovative solutions needed to sustain the Task Force, the vital staging base at Ascension Island, the in-theatre resupply, the set-backs and finally the restoring of order after victory. Had the logistics plan failed, victory would have been impossible and humiliation inevitable, with no food for the troops, no ammunition for the guns, no medical support for casualties etc. The lessons learnt have never been more important with increasing numbers of out-of-area operations required in remote trouble spots at short notice. The Falklands experience is crucial for the education of new generations of military planners and fascinating for military buffs and this book fills an important gap

British combat service support during the Falkland Islands War : considerations for providing operational sustainment to remote areas by Kenneth L Privratsky( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study analyzes British combat service support at the operational level during the 1982 Falkland Islands War and discusses important considerations for providing operational sustainment to remote areas. It begins with a brief discussion of the rapid deployment of the British Task Force and the constraints that resulted that resulted for subsequent operational sustainment. Then, it examines British operational sustainment from time of deployment to the end of the war. The discussion includes organization; initial planning; importance of Ascension; final plans (to include medical evacuation) and how plans changed. The study then discusses six issues from the British experience that are important for the U.S. military to consider when planning and sustaining operations to remote areas: centers of gravity; air superiority and operational sustainment; forward basing; logistics-over-the-shore operations; protecting future sustainability; and improvisation. The study concludes that the U.S. military can learn important lessons from the Falkland Islands War

Falklands 1982 : challenges in expeditionary warfare by Kenneth L Privratsky( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In 1982, a lone admiral urged Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to deploy a military task force to counter Argentina's invasion of the Falkland Islands. The archipelago, 8,000 miles from the United Kingdom, was the source of dispute over sovereignty between the two nations for more than a century. With no forward presence other than a tiny garrison on the islands, no allies in the area or intermediate support bases en route, and not even ships to mount the British military, Thatcher nevertheless decided to order deployment to retake the Falklands. The Prime Minister’s bold move sparked an expeditionary war, surprising many of the world’s other great powers. The British deployed forces nearly half the world away to achieve a complete victory only 74 days after the Argentine invasion. In this lecture, MG (Ret) Kenneth L. Privratsky, author of the recently published book, Logistics in the Falklands War, provides an overview of the war to include key actions leading to the victory, the aftermath, and most importantly, its relevance to the U.S. Army as it continues to focus on expeditionary warfare"--Video home page
