The first major crisis of the Cold War, the 1948-49 Soviet blockade of Berlin was Stalin's brazen challenge to the West. Rising to the occasion, the United States Air Force with help from Britain and France began an ambitious air campaign that supplied enough food and fuel for two million West Berliners, effectively outmaneuvering their Soviet counterparts. Telling the heroic story in 240 rarely seen, duotone photographs, this book includes images of valiant pilots who undertook these missions, the massive planes used in Operation: Vittles, and the jubilant German crowds celebrating the eventual lifting of the blockade.
