The Story of the Red Ball Express

I love military history. I soak it up. Can’t get enough. Movies, books, articles… I have so much respect for the US Armed Forces. Today’s “Best Thing” is about the US Army Red Ball Express.

The Red Ball Express was the logistics answer to the Army’s question, how are we gonna support the Army and their march to destroy the Nazis. We didn’t have the ability to use trains to move fuel, ammunition, and other supplies to the front lines. So we used a massive fleet of trucks and their tremendously brave drivers.
