In August of 1942, Great Britain faced a desperate situation. German bombers hammered the nation’s industrial cities and towns daily, and the toll in loss of life and resources rose steadily. Guy H. Woodward and Grace Steele Woodward tell for the first time the story of how the British, with the aid of forty-four oilfield roughnecks from the United States, developed vital shallow pools of oil in Britain’s famed Sherwood Forest. The Secret of Sherwood Forest is based on extensive research using thousands of reports, letters, and documents released to the authors in 1968.
