Clare Mulley gives an intriguing talk at the Gloucester History Festival about her riveting double biography of Nazi Germanys most highly decorated women test pilots Hitlers personal Valkyries. Hanna Reitsch and Melitta von Stauffenberg were courageous, ambitious women who fought convention to make their names in the male-dominated field of flight and witnessed some of the most extraordinary scenes of the Second World War from the 1936 Olympics and the Berlin Air Club to the Eastern Front and Hitlers Bunker.
