   The Germans failed to incorporate the importance of logistics and
  strategic analysis, into their “interwar” military force modernization,
    what should have been lessons learned from the first world war,

                                                           A. E. F.
            By CARL SANDBURG, from Smoke and Steel (1920)

          There will be a rusty gun on the wall, sweetheart,

          The rifle grooves curling with flakes of rust.

          A spider will make a silver string nest in the

         darkest, warmest corner of it.

         The trigger and the range-finder, they too will be rusty.

         And no hands will polish the gun, and it will hang on the wall.

         Forefingers and thumbs will point casually toward it.

         It will be spoken among half-forgotten, whished-to-be-forgotten things.
     They will tell the spider: Go on, you're doing good work.
