This book is a pictorial chronic of the United States occupation of Berlin from 1945 to 1994, with insights and detail information of the military and political status of the city 125 Miles behind the communist curtain of iron. It reveals every facet of American life from the garrison's daily routine, the surveillance activities of the Military Mission in the Soviet occupation zone, to the CIA/SIS Berlin spy tunnel operation "PBJOINTLY" betrayed by the KGB's double agent in London, George Blake. Berlin as a city deep inside the Soviet zone was a bone in the Soviets' throat. Enclosed by the notorious Berlin Wall from 1961, was the stage for Cold War operations with high security radar stations at Marinfelde and Teufelsberg penetrating the Warsaw Pact. This chronicle discloses the American Garrison's contradictory engagement between post-war commitments in cooperating with the Soviets, e.g. Berlin Air Safety Center and Spandau War Crimes Prison, and at the same time training for war. With a foreword from: General Thomas Griffin Jr. Berlin Brigade Commander, 1984 to 1986. Over 360 B/W photographs.
