Hello all,
Does anyone have any insights to the role played by the RAF and RN in supporting the USAAF Operation Tidal Wave, the attack by Ninth AF B-24s on Ploesti in Romania 1 August 1943?
The relationship between the RAF and 9th AF in the period leading up to the raid is of great interest to me. If anyone has some details (or anecdotes I can research) about how the two cultures mixed after the first American heavy bombers arrived in 1942 it would help a lot.

Thanks,
Bruce
