32 The most important city was divided. Berlin was similarly divided into four distinct areas but was situated some 100 miles within Soviet controlled eastern Germany.France, England, and America decided to combine their territory in Berlin called West Berlin.
33 June 1948, Blockade BeginsSince the city was surrounded by Soviet controlled territory, Stalin denied the 3 other countries the use of the road and rail access.2.1 million residents in West Berlin only had enough food and supplies for 5 weeks.
34 The Berlin AirliftThe only way to reach the people in West Berlin was to use airplanes.The American military provided humanitarian relief to Germans -- whom they had recently fought on the battlefield -- while the Soviets used starvation as a means to control a population.
35 Commitment and credibility For 327 days, 2.3 million tons of supplies were brought to West BerlinPresident Truman succeeded in forcing Stalin to end the Berlin blockade by demonstrating that the United States had both the means and the will to continue the Berlin Airlift indefinitely.
