Fortress Ploesti

February 5, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Nazi Germany had limited access to the oil it needed to fight World War II. A primary source was Romania and its refinery complexes at Ploesti. Jay Stout describes the disastrous low-level bombing raid the Americans sent against Ploesti on August 1, 1943, and also reviews the bombing campaign which was mounted the following year that finally reduced this irreplaceable source of oil to rubble.
