Desert Fire: The Untold Story of the Air Mission That Cut Off Hitler's Oil by John Blundell

The daring, low-level mission to the oil refineries of Ploesti has long been considered one of the most significant missions of World War II. The Allies were determined to annihilate the very source of the fuel which fed the German war machine.
In Desert Fire: The Untold Story of the Air Mission That Cut Off Hitler’s Oil, John Blundell, distinguished veteran of the 98th Bomb Group, provides not only an insider’s point of view on the critical mission in Europe and North Africa but also compelling photos of the heroes and hardships faced by America’s “Force of Freedom,” the 98th Bomb Group. Alma Joyce Hahn of the Benton Courier describes the book as “an adventure story—you will laugh, you will wipe a tear away; you will be inspired.”
