The Soviet Union has blockaded half of Berlin. The people will soon starve. Only the daring, impossible Berlin Airlift can save the city and prevent another World War. This episode brought to you by DomiNations! Try the game free: http://smarturl.it/BerlinAirlift

I know that this is kinda a sad subject, but imma try to lighten it up. The USSR was STALIN until the winter.

A video is almost a year old, and noone is here to mention that Truman's ambition and his barely existent threat of a "Red Menace" was what has lead to the Berlin blockade in the first place? Cold War wouldn't have even happened, had Roosevelt lasted for at least one more year.

Am i the only one who feels this video does not fully recognise the efforts of the French Air Force, RAF, RCAF, RNZAF and RAAF?, and it only looks at the US and USSR perspectives, despite the fact the RAF had 147+ aircraft of many different types

If Stalin had any sense at all he would have seen the bigger picture. No nation no matter how weak WILL rise against you the more you punish them. The Soviets should have created there own financial reform for the east German state and make them as wealthy as the rest of the USSR (no pun intended)

Why would they divide Berlin that is completely in the Russian sector of east Germany among the Allies? Stalin must have been scared of the A-Bomb to agree to this.

I first heard of this back in High-school which would have been about 12 years ago and I must say it still amazes me. The logistics of moving that much cargo alone is nothing short of extraordinary. Combine this with mid-twentieth century technology, it had to go through hostile territory, it involved so many people who spoke different languages, and that many of those people had literally been trying to kill each other less than five years prior. It was nothing short of a miracle of logistics.

I found a small mistake at 10:30, Austria is in red color (Communist) which isn't right. Austria was on the other side of the wall. It should have blue color.

Nice video. But i found a little mistake. Switzerland and Austria were neutral in cold war and not part of either side unlike shown in this video.

Austria and Greece were also taken over by Stalin but later on were the only two that were released. This was before they got their freedom and the russians pulled out in 1955. look up Chancellor Renner's cabinet. The air lift was well before Stalin left.
