The Women Who Flew For Hitler ~ Clare Mulley

Award-winning author Clare Mulley’s third book, “The Women Who Flew for Hitler”, tells the extraordinary story of the two female test pilots who served Nazi Germany, yet who ended their lives on opposite sides of history.
Brilliant pilot Hanna Reitsch was the world’s first woman to fly a helicopter, and later tested rocket planes, and even a manned version of the V1 flying bomb or doodlebug missile. A fanatical Nazi, in the last days of the war she begged Hitler to let her fly him to safety from Berlin. Her nemesis, Melitta von Stauffenberg, test pilot for the Stuka dive bombers and exceptional aeronautical engineer, was part Jewish and secretly supported the most famous attempt on Hitler’s life.
