Clare Mulley at Henley Literary Festival

Hanna Reitsch and Melitta von Stauffenberg were from very different backgrounds but both became pioneering test pilots in 1930s Germany, as Clare explains in The Women who Flew for Hitler. These talented (and strikingly attractive) women were both awarded the Iron Cross for service to the Third Reich but they neither had a good word to say for the other; Hanna begged Hitler to let her fly him to safety in April 1945, while Melitta supported attempt to assassinate the FŸhrer.
