The first donations were from the crew, dropped with their handkerchief parachutes. As more and more people found out, the donations and accolades began pouring in from the Allies, as well as from personal letters addressed to "Onkel Wackelflugel" (Uncle Wiggly Wings) or Der Schokoladen-Flieger (The Chocolate Pilot).
A fascinating, true-life story of the man who started "Operation Little Vittles", as well as the Berlin children he influenced, this biography is filled with photographs and written simply enough for even young children to be taken in by the care one man showed. 110 indexed pages, softcover.
