Description

The City Becomes a Symbol tells the story of the first four tumultuous years of the U.S. Army's occupation of West Berlin and how Berlin became the epicenter of superpower confrontation across all of Europe. The division of Berlin with occupation by Western and Soviet military forces set the stage for the decades-long face-off between the U.S. Army and Soviet forces until the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

Ultimately it was the citizens of Berlin who played a major role in determining the fate and political direction of their city and the whole of Germany until it's reintegration as a unified nation.
