Operation Tidal Wave*

Operation Tidal Wave was an aerial bombardment operation by a composite strike force of five bomb groups from the United States Eighth and Ninth Air Forces to destroy the oil refineries at Ploieşti, Romania. Ploesti was the main source of oil for Nazi Germany's war effort during World War II, when Romania was Germany's ally. The attack involved a total commitment of 178 B-24 Liberator heavy bombers on a 2,400-mile round trip flight to conduct low-level attack on the refineries. All aircraft were based near Benghazi, Libya. 50 bombers were lost in the attack.
