The BLOCKADE and AIRLIFT
Was the first battle of the Cold War a humanitarian effort or a message to the USSR?
Given that the Germans being served during the airlift had just recently been the enemy, how do we define "enemy"? How do we distinguish friend from enemies?
How do we balance risk with reward? What was the price worth paying for Berlin? How does this compare with situations in your lifetime?
Were the Soviets justified in blockading Berlin? Why did they do it?
