About the Author

Originally a medical student, Reitsch left school in order to take up aviation, and held the world gliding record for women. She was invited to fly many of Germany's lastest and increasingly desperate designs, and came to earn the respect and affection of Hitler. She was one of only two women awarded the Iron Cross First Class during WWII.She continued to break records including the women's altitude record (6848 meters) and became German Champion in 1955.

Reviews

"...detailed yet highly readable memoir...reflecting as it does her sheer exuberance in the joys of flying as well as providing insight into the plans of the Luftwaffe during the war."-- "WWII History, Winter 2009"
"..an interesting look at the life of an accomplished pilot, test pilot, and witness of wartime Germany"-- "Cybermodeler"
"this makes it all the highest ranking minus 1 for the fact that she was flying for the wrong side, plus yet 1 to add on, because we need to forget about war. We have to go forward with the life we have on this globe and with our eastern neighbours and another 6 milliard others... makes it still again a score of 5!. Indispensable for your bedside cabinet!"-- "Aviation Book Reviews"
