       During the years immediately after WWII ended, there were no sweets in Russian-blockaded Berlin--no chocolate, no candy, no gum. Lt. Gail S. Halvorsen was a pilot who flew in emergency supplies to feed the two million Berlin citizens. One day, he met a bunch of children and told them he'd drop candy and chewing gum---the signal would be the wiggling wings of his plane.

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.
