Item Description

“When a fire has blazed so hot, one can be burned by even the ashes for a long time.” 1948. Berlin is starving. As the victors of World War II vie for control over Germany, the Russians cut off Berliners’ supplies, and block the Allies’ access into Berlin. The Allies counterstrike with the “Berlin Airlift.” And the Cold War ignites. Into this tortured world flies former bomber pilot, Chance Mitchell, bearing food, fuel, medicine…and scars too deep to be seen. The American’s sole reason for joining the airlift is to find and rescue his buddy and former B-17 copilot, whose plane went down behind the newly forged Iron Curtain on a clandestine flight. In the lawless ruins, Chance follows a thin, tangled thread that takes him to a beautiful but damaged German Jewish Resistance fighter with an enigmatic mission and a fierce will that matches his own. Despite his powerful attraction to her, Chance does not know if she will lead to his answer or his destruction. Haunted by ghosts and loss, Chance battles Soviets of the new Communist empire on the ground and in the air. Lines between enemies and friends blur, but ultimately, the answer to salvation lies in Berlin’s subtlest and most powerful resource. A story of danger, intrigue and moral ambiguity, rich with daredevil aviation action and historical accuracy, Jitterbug Lift is a Cold War adventure story with heart. Dedicated to the men and women who united to save Berlin.
