Author Clare Mulley will be signing copies at IWM Duxford of The Women who Flew For Hitler.
Hanna Reitsch and Melitta von Stauffenberg made their names in the male-dominated field of flight in 1930s Germany. With the war, both became pioneering test pilots and both were awarded the Iron Cross for service to the Third Reich. But they could not have been more different and neither woman had a good word to say for the other.
Acclaimed biographer Clare Mulley gets under the skin of these two distinctive and unconventional women, giving a full - and as yet largely unknown - account of their contrasting yet strangely parallel lives.
Throughout 2018 IWM will be holding meet the author sessions across our branches.
