In this graphic account, former RAFVR Squadron Leader Robert Jackson recreates vividly those tense days forty years ago when the Iron Curtain came down with a vengeance. All links between Berlin and the West were severed. The Berlin Airlift began, a vital lifeline for the people of Berlin. For ten months the RAF, the USA Air Force and many chartered airlines supplied food, fuel, household goods, etc., operating round the clock, in all weather, being constantly harrassed by Russian fighters. Included in this book are detailed appendices of aircraft and crew casualties, tables of individual aircraft performances, monthly tonnages. A story of true courage and ingenuity. 160 pages with glossary and index. 9.5 x 6.75 inches. Patrick Stephens Pub. Great Britain, 1988..
