The Berlin Airlift: Remembering the Humanity


10 in stock


The Berlin Airlift of 1948-1949 was the result of the Soviet Union’s Berlin blockade that was designed to take over the entire city of Berlin a few years after the end of World War II. The Berlin Airlift was significant in many ways, the most important and foremost being its success as a humanitarian airlift operation to help 2.5 million Berliners survive strictly by delivering life sustaining supplies via airplanes. The scope and magnitude to save such a large amount of humanity strictly by aircraft had never been attempted before.

Award winning author and renowned Cold War historian, Francis Gary Powers, Jr., brings to life the massive problems and struggles confronting the airlift planners in this unique graphic novel, The Berlin Airlift. His graphic format approach contains valuable airlift facts and helps the reader to recall specific aspects about the great Berlin Airlift. The result is a fascinating piece of Cold War history that helps preserve this part of world history for a younger generation of readers. Seventy-five years after the fact, this will be the definitive Graphic Novel account of one of the most important events of the Cold War.
