Berlin Airlift http://wamc.org en David Nightingale : The Berlin Airlift http://wamc.org/post/david-nightingale-berlin-airlift <p>There are at least two famous airlifts associated with World War II. In 1942, when the last route from India to China was cut off, FDR made the decision that it was imperative China receive armaments and supplies for the Army Air Force in China, which was struggling to pin down Japanese forces. Both the US and UK began the appallingly dangerous air lift over the Himalayas -- from Assam (famous for its tea) in India to Kunming in China. Fri, 18 May 2012 16:55:00 +0000 39280 at http://wamc.org
