Beans, bullets, and black oil : the story of fleet logistics afloat in the Pacific during World War II by Worrall Reed Carter( Book )

7 editions published between 1952 and 1953 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Includes over 150 photos.Victory is won or lost in battle, but all military history shows that adequate logistic support is essential to the winning of battles.In World War II, logistic support of the fleet in the Pacific became a problem of such magnitude and diversity, as well as vital necessity, that all operations against Japan hinged upon it. The advance against the enemy moved our fleet progressively farther and farther away from the west coast of the United States, from Pearl Harbor, and from other sources of supply, to support our fleet we constructed temporary bases for various uses, and we formed floating mobile service squadrons and other logistic support groups. These floating organizations remained near the fighting fleet, supplying food, ammunition, and other necessities while rendering repair services close to the combat areas, this support enabled the fleet to keep unrelenting pressure upon the enemy by obviating the return of the fleet to home bases.Because of the knowledge gained during his South Pacific service and particularly from his experience as Commander of Service Squadron Ten, the largest of the mobile squadrons, Rear Admiral W.R. Carter was chosen to write this history of logistics afloat in the Pacific. The opinions expressed and the conclusions reached are those of the author.- Secretary of the Navy, Dan Kimball

Side 1: Hoosiers and motion pictures go all the way back to the days preceeding Hollywood ... all of the way back to Richmond's C. Fransic Jenkins. Jenkins invented the motion picture system which Thomas Edison received credit for developing. Edison bought Jenkins' equipment and the rights to build more. Jenkins also is credited for inventing the paper milk carton. Side 2: Indianapolis' Raymond Spruance, who sailed toy boats on the city's Fall Creek as a child, grew into one of the most influential officers in the United States Navy in World War II. Substituting for ailing Admiral William Halsey at the battle of Midway Island, Spruance's command decisions turned the tide against attacking Japanese warships, and established the conditions necessary for an American victory in the Pacific theater
