The Blockade Breakers by Helena Schrader
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Berlin Airlift represents one of the most dramatic humanitarian efforts of the post-war era and was a strikingly successful example of British and American co-operation. Furthermore, it was an event which made a major contribution towards turning a wartime enemy into a Cold-War ally. At the core of the book are two themes: the enormous logistical challenges posed by the airlift and the complicated relationship between Berliners and the Western Allies.
