About This Item

Novato, California, U.S.A.: Presidio, 1983. Long before the modern term "scorched earth", the U.S. Military, through the heroic efforts of the 460th Bombardment Group, targeted oilfields of the enemy. This was not in the Middle East, but in Europe and it was World War II. This is the story of the crew of the "Hangar Queen" - their antics, camaraderie, tragedies and sacrifices to rob Hitler's army of the much-needed resources of the oilfields of Ploesti.
