Publisher's Description

Berlin, spring 1948. Teenage cousins Erich and Katarina are just trying to survive in a city still devastated by World War 2 when the Soviets blockade the city isolating its citizens—and starving them—behind the Iron Curtain. But the Americans have food, so Erich sneaks inside a U.S. cargo plane…where he is caught by a sympathetic American sergeant who tries to befriend him. Though Erich has plenty of reasons to resent this man, in the end he must decide—should he cling to bitterness or learn to forgive?

    Great exciting read, a page turner. A fictional story interwoven with history. Makes history fun but educational at the same time.

    My 9 year old son, LOVED this series! He is not easy to please with books either. He has an interest in history so I thought he might like these and I was right! He even asked, "Are there more books in this series?" He read each book within days. LOVED THEM ALL.

    The Wall Series is an epic tale that extends across generations and unfolds against the backdrop of a dangerous Cold War Berlin. Book I occurs circa 1948, during the beginnings of the iron curtain. In post war Germany, the Russians begin to circumvent movement between East and West Berlin. Teenage cousins Katarina and Erich struggle to survive. Erich also distrusts the American soldier who finds him foraging his plane for food and forces Erich and his cousin to take part in a human interest story that includes a "candy" drop into East Berlin. When the AMerican soldier befriends Erich's family, Erich's faith is challenged as Erich re-examines his hatred of Americans, those he blames for his minister father's death.Although a fictional account, Robert Elmer takes great pains in assuring historical accuracy making this series both entertaining and enlightening, engaging readers of all ages.

    Candy Bombers is a fantastic story for kids and young teens. It highlights some real events that happened in post WWII Germany. What a great way to teach kids history, especially the positive side.I've read a lot of WWII era stories and never once heard of the man who dropped candy over Berlin (and in particular the communist side) as a kind gesture to the people in a war-torn land to show that Americans really did want to help them. That's such a neat story. Candy Bombers is loaded with intrigue and in some places contains really great tension. The story has villains and some scary scenes, but nothing young teens couldn't handle. After all, most kids watch more violence on television. The values shown in this story make it worth reading, IMHO. Especially now that communism is not nearly as well-known as it had been during my youth.I enjoyed Candy Bombers immensely and highly recommend The Wall series by Robert Elmer, of which Candy Bombers is the first book.
