Synopsis

Clare Mulley tells the extraordinary story of Hanna Reitsch and Melitta von Stauffenberg, the only female test pilots to serve the Nazi regime, yet who ended their lives on opposite sides of history. This is a full - and as yet largely unknown - account of their contrasting yet strangely parallel lives, against a changing backdrop of the 1936 Olympics, the Eastern Front, the Berlin Air Club, and Hitler's bunker.
