520    The only book to examine Berlin operations in detail, 
       written by experts with extensive first-hand 
       knowledgeBetween 1945 and 1990 the British Government 
       mounted some of the most successful intelligence 
       operations of the Cold War. Conducted in great secrecy, 
       aircrews flew specially modified light transport and 
       training aircraft to gather intelligence on the Soviet and
       East German military targets that surrounded Berlin. The 
       air corridors comprised three regulated airways for civil 
       and military air traffic of the Western Allies between 
       West Berlin and West Germany passing over East Germany's' 
       territory. Operating under the guise of transportation and
       training flights, they exercised their right of access to 
       Berlin along the corridors and over the city to gather 
       huge amounts of imagery for nearly 50 years. Together with
       their French and U.S. counterparts, these flights provided
       the western intelligence community with unique knowledge 
       of the organization and equipment used by Warsaw Pact 
       forces. For the first time, using recently declassified 
       materials and extensive interviews with those involved, 
       this book provides a detailed account and analysis of 
       these operations and their unique contribution to the Cold
       War intelligence picture.
