D-Day Operation PLUTO

Operation PLUTO

An interesting look at Operation PLUTO (Pipe-Lines Under The Ocean) during World War Two from United News Newsreel. The operation’s mission was to construct undersea oil pipelines under the English Channel between England and France to keep the allied armies supplied with fuel as they invaded Normandy and drove further into German occupied territory. Another interesting piece of military history that I had never heard about in all the books I’ve read about WWII.
