Consolidated B-24D lost during Operation Tidalwave
This picture shows a Consolidated B-24D Liberator that crash landed during Operation Tidalwave, the low level attack on the Romanian oil refineries at Ploesti. The picture was rather unfortunately captioned "This U.S. Bomber hit Ploesti".
 Consolidated B-24 Liberator (Crowood Aviation), Martin W. Bowman. A well balanced book that begins with a look at the development history of the B-24, before spending nine out of its ten chapters looking at the combat career of the aircraft in the USAAF, the US Navy and the RAF.
