The Case for Reserve Fleets

The Development of Mobile Logistic Support in Anglo-American Naval Policy, 1900–1953

The second major challenge for planners, highlighted by the collective experience at the beginning of World War II, was the need for better preparation and efficiency at marshalling logistic resources in the event of another war. Exacerbating the problem after 1945 was the debilitating effects from very rapid demobilization of both ships and manpower. This chapter investigates how this was managed and whether the mobilization plans — including the role of reserve fleets and their methods of preservation — worked, based on the evidence about naval mobilization efforts for the Korean War.
