From the Author
1945 – 2005
Sixty years have passed since the end of World War II. A new generation has grown up and the sufferings of the war and its aftermath are only the subjects of action movies. Nevertheless, the world as we know it today was born in those days, in the middle of controversy.
In 1945, Europe was in ruins. Hunger, misery, and economic disaster ravaged the continent. Based on human desperation, Communism progressed. Tyranny and dictatorship changed color from Nazi black to Soviet red. When in June 1948, the Soviet Army blocked West Berlin, they were certain the allied powers would abandon the city, opening the road for the Soviet Union to exploit Germany and all of Europe. In face of the allies' tenacity and determination, the Soviets lifted the blockade in May 1949. In the heart of the Soviet sphere, an island of democracy and freedom, West Berlin, remained unvanquished. It remained bright and appealing until the day when the fundamental principle of mankind could spread out to an entire region. In November 1989, the Berlin Wall came down and the Communist dictatorship collapsed. Without the heroism of American and British pilots and airmen, without the determination of two and half million Berliners forty years earlier, that day would never have come about.
