Daring Young Men: The Heroism and Triumph of the Berlin Airlift
Richard Reeves, Author, Daring Young Men
Best-selling author Reeves offers a gripping account of one of the most audacious and perilous actions of the post-WWII years – the Berlin Airlift. When the Soviets cut off all supplies to two million West Berliners in 1948, President Truman boldly resolved to resupply the isolated city by air. What followed was a daring humanitarian operation in which American and British planes delivered 2.3 million tons of supplies, demonstrating the West’s resolve to keep Berlin independent. Reeves shares the gripping story and discusses its impact.
