Growing up under Hitler, surviving the war, taking to the skies—this is a story of one woman’s marvelous journey to romance and long-term happiness. In 1937 banners of National Socialism had already begun to decorate Germany, and Marlis Mann’s childhood was a world of war as bombs fell and thousands of fellow citizens lost their homes and their lives. Then everything changed. Discover how Marlis first heard strains of American jazz from an American army encampment, and how she joined the new post-war German airlines, which provided her an opportunity of adventure.
