'In this fine piece of popular history, Barry Turner provides an
engaging and vivid account of this first major episode of the Cold
War.' * BBC History *
'Crisply written, suitably dramatic and ultimately heartening book.' * Daily Mail *
'This new history of "Operation Vittles" based on hitherto unexplored archives and interviews with veterans paints a fresh, vivid picture of the Berlin airlift, whose repercussions - the role of the USA as a global leader, German ascendancy, Russian threat - are still being felt today.'
