Ahhh...the famous Checkpoint Charlie so often seen in movies and literature.

Originally there were only two checkpoints in the American sector – one at Helmstedt (West German-East German border) and the other at Dreilinden (West Berlin and East Germany border). It was not along after that when the US military police opened the third checkpoint at Friedrichstrasse. Based on the phonetic alphabet the name Alpha was given to Helmstedt checkpoint, Bravo to the Dreilinden Checkpoint and Charlie to the Friedrichstrasse check point.

That depends on when they were opened, and on when the phonetic alphabet changed. If it was early enough the first two would have been Able and Baker.

Well, Torplexed, Helmstedt wasn't in the American Zone. It was in the British Zone. And yes, Sailor Steve, they weren't always known as Checkpoints Alpha and Bravo, because the checkpoints were established on 1 July 1945.

Berlin itself would've been the quickest erected POW camp had the balloon gone up.

Both of you get a cookie. Well done.

'NOTHER QUESTION:

Who was Peter Fechter and how does he figure in this scenario?

Nope, Tony was Mexican. This dashing figure is of Cuban descent, so he claimed.
