Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
"From little things come big things," Gail Halvorsen remembered

his father saying. As a twenty-seven-year-old American pilot, Brother

Halvorsen's job was to airdrop much-needed food and supplies to the

people of West Berlin in the aftermath of World War II. But it was

his simple gift of two sticks of gum that launched an extraordinary

humanitarian endeavor and earned him the nickname "The Candy

Bomber." Each day as hundreds of small white parachutes delivered

treats to the children of West Germany, the wounds of war began to

heal. "Operation Little Vittles" captured the imagination of people

everywhere, bringing the spirit of Christmas to a world in need of

peace and hope.

Famed broadcast journalist and author Tom Brokaw brings this

remarkable true story to life in a stunning live performance with the

Mormon Tabernacle Choir, captured on the accompanying DVD.

Also included in the book is a template and directions for creating

your own "Candy Bomber" parachutes.
