Abstract : The collection and organization of equipment loss data from US Army records for World Wars I and II and Korea provided the analytical base for this report. Records were neither uniform or complete, but the body of information extracted from them justifies the drawing of a number of useful conclusions and has made possible the quantification in standard terms of equipment losses in various combat postures under varying conditions.
