    Never knew how they keep the fuel supply flowing. Thought this was interesting.

    it is interesting. but I wonder why the kept refueling over land??? a unit called the red ball express supplied fuel and supply's to the forward area's. I guess Patton was moving faster than they could lay this pipe. matter of fact he out ran the express.
    trust but verify

    You must revisit the video, This was how we supplied the fuel at and on day 1 plus. From there on, we had a way to make it happen.

    oh I did TS. but the vid is a little deceptive. it does not show the time frame. the cable did not reach Normandy till August. code name
    Bambi. the allies brought with them the mulberry harbor system which was sunk off the beach on D day. supply ships of all kinds off loaded supplies there including fuel. problem was the AO's were very slow when fully loaded. and required a massive escort system to keep the German's from sending them to the bottom. so the idea of a pipeline was born an became a reality.
