N.P. (Los Angeles): n.p., n.d. (1948). Mimeographed broadside, printed on one side of a single legal-sized leaf, approx. 8-1/2 X 14 inches. Folded three times horizontally, as for mailing, otherwise fine. Item #204680
Informational broadside of unspecified origin, likely intended for readers of "Peoples' World" or a similar Soviet-sympathetic publication. The document centers on a Q & A sequence addressing the situation in Berlin, which had been blockaded by the occupying Soviet forces in a direct challenge to the developing post-war order. The broadside offers explanations of some of the issues that led to the blockade. It appears to predate the commencement of the Berlin Airlift, with which allied forces answered the blockade. An early relic of one of the first major controversies of the Cold War.
