Abstract

Throughout history, the army leaders who have realized the overwhelming importance of logistics in military action have
been those who have achieved their intended goals. The importance of logistics in relation to the success of military action
is highlighted eloquently by the French general Antoine Henri Jomini: “Logistics encompasses the means and arrangements
with which tactics and strategies are implemented. The strategy decides where to act; logistics bring troops to that point. “
But what is the beginning of military logistics in history?
All the great conquests were based on a strong logistics component, but who was the first leader to recognize its
value?
