West Berlin


West Berlin was a political enclave which comprised the western part of Berlin during the years of the Cold War. Although the actual legal status of West Berlin was ambiguous, and the territorial claim by the Federal Republic of Germany was heavily disputed by the Soviet Union and other Eastern block countries, West Berlin aligned itself politically in 1949.

The London Protocol of 1944 and the Potsdam Agreement established the legal framework for the occupation of Germany in the wake of World War II. According to these agreements, Germany would be formally under the administration of four Allies (the United States, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, and France) until a German government "acceptable to all parties" could be established.

Join us for a GORUCK style history lesson about West Berlin. Come prepared to share some knowledge and stories.

This event is part of a triple Basic event series about the German Unity Day and the historical significance of Berlin in the Cold War.

Pain is the theme of all GORUCK Challenges. Our Special Forces Cadres will ensure it’s pain with purpose by pushing individuals out of their comfort zones and building each class into a team. Train hard and show up ready. It’s worth it.
