Overview

In 1948 and 1949, with help from France and the British, the United States Air Force began the Berlin Airlift, an air campaign that supplied enough food and fuel for two million West Berliners and eventually broke the Soviet blockade of Berlin. This reference brings together a comprehensive collection of more than 240 historical photographs and illustrations from Europe and the United States from the airlift. An ideal book for aviation enthusiasts or history buffs, this collection perfectly encompasses the first major crisis of the Cold War.
