reviewed The Lorraine Campaign: An Overview: September-December 1944 on
"The Lorraine campaign demonstrated that logistics often drive operations, no matter how forceful and aggressive the commanding general may be. In the August pursuit that brought Third Army to Lorraine, General Patton daringly violated tactical principles and conducted improvised operations with great success. He discovered, however, that the violation of logistical principles is an unforgiving and cumulative matter that, sooner or later, every improvisation and shortcut taken must be repaid." --Dr. Christopher Gabel.

This short but concise examination of the Lorraine Campaign will make a welcome addition to any professional military historians library.
