THE WOMEN WHO FLEW FOR HITLER A True Story of Soaring Ambition and Searing Rivalry

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Christa Lewis

Biography & Memoir • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Christa Lewis delves into the story of Germany's pioneering women test pilots, Melitta von Stauffenberg and Hanna Reitsch. These women loved their country but were polar opposites in morality and personality. Driven by a love of flight, they were not deterred by its high risks. Flashy Hanna embraced Hitler's plan for Germany, while erudite Melitta tried to preserve her country and family from his terror. Lewis immerses the listener in her honest and dynamic portrayal of these women's lives and their brave and amazing accomplishments in the male-dominated field of aeronautics. In a serious tone she delivers the shocking and heart-wrenching details of wartime Germany. Through Lewis, Mulley's heroines will stay with listeners long after the last sentence is spoken. S.H.
