Berlin Blockade was an international diplomatic crisis after the end of WW II. Soviet Union blocked road, railway and canal access to allied controlled part of Berlin. This led to a prolonged crisis during which allied forces airlifted supplies to the blockaded part. This was the first international crisis of the Cold War and practically spelled the onset of Cold War era. It was followed by major conflicts like Korean War and Vietnam War.
