This essay looks in to the logistics operational significance during the Korean war,1950-1953.

Aiming on the investigation anddescription of the logistical organisation and it’s consistency on operations. To achievethe purpose the author searched the answer to two main questions during the analyse ofthe different texts. These main questions where:• Witch logistical factors influenced the operational design?• How did the logistical organisation develop?The method used in this essay is based upon an empiric study in the form of an perusalof literature. The qualitative content analysis of literature is purely descriptive.The most significant conclusions to be drawn in this essay are as follows:The infrastructure in Korea was one of the most important factors that influenced theoperational design from the logistical point of view.Another important factor was the logistical organisation, witch during the campaign inKorea was built in accordance with the U.S. Army doctrine. This made the organisationinflexible and caused logistical problems. Largely these problems could have beenavoided if the organisation had been more flexible in its form. Finally the lack of plansfor military operations in Korea influenced the operational design on the American side.They were unprepared for the situation that aroused in June 1950. The Americans had tothrow their units in to combat before they where ready both concerning logisticalsupport and combat training. This situation could have been avoided if they should havehad valid plans for such an development of the situation.
