for how long had modern oil pumps been constructed in the Middle East and elsewhere before WWII?
and how heavily were these oil pumps defended by both the Germans and the Allies? where the German oil pumps were at and HOW THESE WERE ORIGINALLY SET UP AND BY WHO? also, how complicated were the oil pumps and , again, who sent engineers and mechanics to set these up and when and why? why OIL is not more talked about in WWII as from what have read the tanks and trucks in WWII used TONS AND TONS of oil..so was curious as to why this was not more of a dire need for both to protect and secure oil..instead of going to St. Petersburg to steal Amber from a palace walls..when the nazis already had secured the Baltic..why they were not more interested in the Russian oil fields and the Middle East oil fields? btw, when these were set up as well? also, WAS IT EASY TO BLOW UP OIL PUMPS? SURELY IF AN OIL PUMP IS KNOCKED OUT...THE PANZER TROOPS ARE GOING TO BE STUCK IN MIDDLE OF NOWHERE FOR AWHILE..AND HOW THEY TRANSPORTED OIL TO THE BATTLEFIELDS? WERE THESE THE LARGE PETROLEUM TRUCKS THAT ARE SEEN TODAY? HOW DIFFERENT AND WHEN INVENTED? please explain what you can thanks for your answers!
