I know this book hasn't gotten good reviews, but I liked the context that it gave for that time. It was an easy read & I got a lot of information I wanted.

A Christmas gift for my Father who participated in the Air Lift (his first assignment after basic). He and my Mother had it read within a few days and according to him it was very true to the events he witnessed. What I gained has been many additional conversations with him, about this event and other aspects of his 25 yr Air Force service.
Knights from Bernin
My problem with this book, and its authors, is the tendency to combine cliched and tired text with repetitive and dreary statistics. We get little idea here of the ideological, economic and strategic factors that led to the Russian blockade or the Anglo-American response. Both the episodes and the statistics have been lifted in great chunks from other and better books. I doubt if the authors went anywhere near a USAAF, RAF or German--and God forbid a Soviet--archive while researching this book. It is just a rehash and reads like it.
EROROHALO
This book is unoriginal, dreary, derivative, and spattered with errors. It is neither sound as military/aviation nor political history. The authors are generalists who churn out books on every subject under the sun just as quickly as they can find earlier (authentic) works in libraries and websites and cut and paste.
