Miller, Roger G.: To Save A City.v1.10 Oct 2014
To Save A City is the story of the Berlin Airlift, 1948-1949.
From this book:
The Berlin Crisis of 1948 had its origins in the dark mind of Joseph Stalin. Plans to interfere with Western access to Berlin were already hatched and harassment had begun by March 19, 1948, when the dictator met with German leaders of the Soviet-controlled Party of Socialist German Unity (SED). During the subsequent discussion, German communist leader Wilhelm Pieck warned that the elections scheduled for Berlin in October threatened a disaster for the SED. But, he argued, that humiliation could be prevented if, somehow, the Western powers could be removed from the city.
“Let’s make a joint effort,” Stalin replied, “perhaps we can kick them out.”
This book is the history of Stalin's utter failure and the Allies complete success. Instead of forcing German unification under Russian control, it brought forth the establishment of West Germany. It also provoked other European nations to form NATO, together with the United States.
This is a US and allied Air Force story, showing how the airlift was cobbled together and the men and machines that made it happen.
This is a US Government document and thus in the public domain.
