About This Book
britain is an island so supplies have to be imported. during both world wars the germans decided starvation – food for the people, oil for machinery, would be effective.
by 1941 the situation was becoming desperate but oil had been discovered in the middle of nottinghamshire. however, getting the equipment needed, and the experts to drill for it, was a real problem.
the solution was found by going to the usa.
this is the story of the 44 men who came to england on a 365 day contract.
