The Rucksack War

This just came in over the XVIII Airborne Corps' Facebook feed: The Rucksack War: U.S. Army Operational Logistics in Grenada by Edgar F. Raines, Jr. This is a 686-page monograph on operational logistics and other behind-the-scenes activity in Operation URGENT FURY, the U.S.-led invasion of Grenada in 1983.

I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I'm very impressed by the level of detail that a quick scan reveals. It is available at no charge from scribd. I'll be putting it on my iPad for some light reading :).
