?Piszkiewicz presents the singular career of German test pilot Hanna Reitsch.... In spite of family opposition and the social climate, she pursued her love [of flying] and at one time held, unofficially, most of the glider endurance, range, and altitude records. Shifting to powered aircraft, she became one of the best-known women of the Third Reich... Her ability was outstanding, her political judgement less so, though her cultivation of top-ranking Nazis seems to have been done as much to secure mentors as to support Nazi ideology. Proof that historically 'lost' women come in all shapes, sizes, and political colorations, this biography is a worthwhile addition to the literature of aviation.??Booklist
