    You might also run a search on Army Sleep deprivation in Google scholar--U.S. Army labs ran many experiments on changes in performance--from time to time their research would be circulated as professional reading or simplified into practical examples we could apply in the field.

    This one might be useful. The discussion points out that (one of the big issues that struck me) with chronic reduced sleep is that people who've adapted enough to no longer feel sleepy lack the insight to judge their own performance on tasks - which is adversely affected for all their waking hours.

    Lots of hits on Google Scholar with search term sleep deprivation.
