A long-term member of PMI Houston TX., he lives with his wife Juliet in the Tomball area and his interests are reading, studying history, and cycling

Synopsis:

The Berlin Airlift was the first round of the Cold War. A shooting war with the Soviet Union was a very real possibility. In early 1948 the Soviets closed all land and water transport routes to Berlin, from western Germany. This left only a slender air bridge to supply the western allies and 2.5 million German civilians in West Berlin. The western political and military establishments believed the airlift would fail. But one man had done this before and believed that an airlift could succeed.  This is the story of one of the most difficult but ultimately successful projects of the 20 century.
