“Air Bridge Berlin” is set in 1948 Berlin during Operation Vittles (Berlin Airlift). The story is about a US Army Soldier, an Infantryman, assigned to guard Tempelhof airport that is befriended by a young Berliner that was only there for the candy parachutes that were falling from the sky.

As their friendship grows, they are unaware that while the cargo planes are bringing food, medicine, fuel and other much needed supplies into the city something else was being flown out.

When the young Berliner sees something he was not supposed to, things start to heat up. He turns to his new friend to help and soon they are on a race against time. In “Air Bridge Berlin”, the reader will run into some old friends and meet a new friend to the Occupied Berlin series.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Then from April 6 to 12 everyone will get a chance to vote for the image you think is the one that should go on the cover of "Air Bridge Berlin".

Here are a few things to consider: Infantryman, young Berliner male, C-47, C-54, Tempelhof Airport, Soviets, Spies/shadowy figures, city rubble, the Pilots, Ground crew and Berlin.
