After World War 2, Berlin, Germany was in ruins. The U.S. Air Force dropped food on the city of Berlin as Russia exacted revenge on the Germans for killing many Russians during the war. Pilot Gail Halverson wants to give the German children hope during such a dark time and begins dropping candy filled parachutes throughout the city. Soon people all over Europe and the United States are donating parachutes and sweets for Lt. Halverson to drop. The impact of Halverson's program are far-reaching and timeless. A sweet story.

4-6th grades.
