5Best book on Logistics Engineering and Management
By Joseph E Marckel
If you have are pursuing a degree in a logistics background this is the book that you want to keep around. I completed my MS in Logistics Management and always carried this book and my APA manual. I still use it from time to time on my Doctoral studies.

5Logistics Engineering & Management, Benjamin S. Blanchard, 6th ed.
By D. Harmon
This book is an essential textbook or reference for persons hoping to enter, or already working in, Federal Government acquisition logistics. DOD, FAA, NASA and other agencies who need to plan and accomplish logistics support for their new systems rely on these logistics concepts for their contracts. The book is very readable and provides helpful references. In one Federal aerospace contract on which I worked, the Government client asked our consulting firm to evaluate the logistics planning and management of their major prime contractor for a multi-billion dollar aerospace system. The Government client specified that our firm's analysts support our evaluations and recommendations, good or bad, with Blanchard's book. This gives good testimony at how highly regarded Blanchard's book is as an authoritative logistics source! The book is an extremely thorough, detailed and well written reference. Buyers should note; however, that if they are not in the Government systems acquisition field as students, engineers, analysts, or program managers, it will be of little use. In fact, it will probably be incomprehensible to them. Government systems acquisition contracts (particularly DOD's) are extremely structured and unlike the way commercial businesses buy and develop systems. The book is thus of little use for commercial business logistics planning, which does not follow Federal patterns. Summary: Very well worth the money if you work on US Governmentsystems acquisition contracts; but look for used copies, which are plentiful.
