How is a maritime power like the United States going to be able to sustain a fight against a land power with four times its population, a larger Navy, and is located on the other side of the Pacific?

The only reliable way you can get the fuel, weapons, and supplies is with a robust force of combat logistics ships.

Do we have that force? Do our budgets and plans match realistic requirements?

We're going to dive in deep on the topic today with returning guest, Dr. James Holmes, the inaugural J. C. Wylie Chair of Maritime Strategy at the US Naval War College. 

We will pin our discussion today on his recent article, More Combat Logistics Force Ships? Yes Please! at the Center for Maritime Strategy.
