Description:
 The Berlin airlift was one of the greatest adventures in American military history. In 1948, Soviet troops closed all access routes to West Berlin by land, sea, and rail, threatening the lives of 2.5 million people and provoking the first major international crisis of the Cold War. American General Lucius D. Clay built a bridge across the sky, involving 700 planes and 250,000 flights over a period of 14 months. Join German Historian Anette Isaacs for a discussion of this exciting time in her country's postwar history.
