{detailed description}The story of the Berlin airlift during 1948/49.
The Russians, in an attempt to stop the Soviet-controlled Party of Socialist German Unity (SED) from suffering a humiliating defeat in the country's upcomming elections, blockaded the capital in an attempt to kick the Allied forces out of the City. For 11 months the allied air forces transported everything the city needed into three airfields in West Berlin. Food, coal, clothing and all manner of raw materials were carried in thousands of flights, and in all weathers, until the blackade was eventually broken in May 1949.
