Anyone know of a source that discusses the details of cross beach supply and the ports for Operations Husky, Avalance, and Shingle? I'm studying the problems of supply for amphibious landings and need information of the ammounts of cargo or supply landed to supply these operations. Information on what was landed across the beach and what came through any port is partiulary usefull.

Any directions or other help are appreciated here.

You likely already have this:http://www.militaryhistoryonline.com/wwii/husky/plans.aspx

I did a search finding many hits to Husky logistics etc. Unfortunately documentation with info that would help must be paid for. Most in pdf format.

Goon luck.

Thanks for the lead. Perhaps I can find some of those in the local university library.
