Summary
On June 24, 1948, the Soviet Union cut off all access to West Berlin, prepared to starve the city into submission. Most of America's top officials considered the situation hopeless. But an ill-assorted group of castoffs and second-stringers wound up not only saving millions of desperate people from a dire threat but changed how the world viewed the United States. This is the story of the unlikely men who came together to make the Berlin Airlift one of the great military and humanitarian successes of American history
