Abstract : This section provides a summary of all work performed on 'General Urban Warfare Amphibious Logistics Applications', in which the BDM Corporation was tasked to investigate the impact of an urban environment upon combat service support functions and systems. The overall study effort was undertaken in two sequential phases. Phase I was concerned with CSS during an amphibious assault and subsequent offensive operations in an urban area; Phase II focused on defensive CSS requirements. Each phase was documented in two volumes. One volume contained relevant operation plans keyed to designated tactical missions. The other volume was a technical report providing an in-depth analysis of urban CSS requirements and pecularities. A complete documentation packet consists of Volumes I through V.
