Summary

Summary

Acclaimed author Andrei Cherny tells the gripping saga of a rag-tag band of Americans-with limited resources and little hope for success-keeping West Berliners alive in the face of Soviet tyranny, winning the hearts and minds of former enemies, and giving the world a shining example of fundamental goodness. "[Written] with the flair of a novelist ."-Kirkus Reviews
