A Chat With Clare Mulley

Clare Mulley’s latest book, The Women Who Flew For Hitler, is a fascinating look at two remarkable and complicated women, Melitta von Stauffenberg and Hanna Reitch.  As test pilots for the Third Reich, they were at the forefront of aviation and tumultuous times.  The book is an intimate and honest biography and Clare has kindly taken some time to answer a few of my questions about it.
