Foreword
Projectingmilitaryforcesover
great
distances
to achieve
strategic
objectives became
a
hallmark
of the
U.S.
Army
in the
twentieth
century.
Now
that
our
Army
is
once
again
based
largely
in the
continental
United
States,
we have become
keenly
interested
in the
challenges
associated
with
such
force
projection.
Thesevolumes
remind
us
that those
challenges
are not easily met.
America's
Army
of
1898
was not
prepared
to
achieve
the
objectives
selected
by its
political
masters.
A
flood
of
patriotic
volunteers
could
fill
its
ranks
but could not
overcome
fundamental
shortcomings
in
staff
orga-
nization, planningcapacity,and
sustainment
capability.
Although
inspiredinnovation,
good
luck,
and
resilient soldiers
offset
many
deficiencies,
major
reforms
followed
on the
heels
of the
shaky performances
outlined
by
the
documents
in
these
volumes.The
U.S.
Army's
original
tradition
in
supporting
military history
scholar-shipcentered
on
publication
of key
documents.
The
multivolume
series
of
Official
Records
from
the
Civil
War is
reasonably
wellknown
in
today's
Army,
and the
recent reprint
of
United
States
Army
in the
World
War
has
made
that
series
morereadily available. This
reprint
is in
thatsame tradi-
tion,
even
though
its
scope
is
somewhat limited.Soldiers
who
leaf
through
these
volumes
will
be
struck
by
similarities
and
differences
as they
consider
the
past
and the world
around
them. The
one
major
similarityis
that leaders
must lead. Obstacles,
uncertainties,
and
mistakes
will
all be encountered as a nationgoesto
war.
Seeing
our
fore-
bears
overcome
their
problems can
give
us
perspective
on our
own.
In
thisspirit,
these
volumes
are
reprinted
in
anticipation
of the
centennial
of the
events
they
chronicle.
