 Berlin Airlift, Berliner Luftbruecke 1948-49

Berlin Airlift, Berliner Luftbruecke 1948-49

The Berlin Blockade, one of the major crises of the Cold War, occurred from June 24, 1948 - May 11, 1949 when the Soviet Union blocked Western rail and road access to West Berlin. The crisis abated after the Soviet Union did not act to stop American, British and French airlifts of food and other provisions to the Western-held sectors of Berlin following the Soviet blockade.
