When Mother Russia called, Litvyak traded her childhood for a YAK-1 fighter and shredded Hitler's vaunted all-male Luftwaffe.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
Renowned author and businessman M.G. Crisci is releasing a new edition of Call Sign, White Lily—the heroic story of the world’s first female ace—Russian pilot Lilia Litvyak—on the 70th anniversary of her death.
The new edition and a related website includes enhanced content and bonus material that offers new photos, videos and information on Litvyak, her follow female pilots also known as the Night Witches, and the air war on the Eastern Front during World War II. This latest edition of Call Sign, White Lily (Orca Publishing Co.) continues to tell how when Mother Russia called, Litvyak traded her childhood for a YAK-1 fighter and shredded Hitler's vaunted all-male Luftwaffe on her way to becoming the world's first female ace before her death in aerial combat over the Ukraine just short of her 22nd birthday.
Call Sign, White Lily is a largely untold story that is set as historical fiction against the background of a devastating war that claimed the lives of as many as 30 million Soviet soldiers and citizens. The book also serves as an important reminder of the unprecedented sacrifices the Soviets made during the Second World War against a common enemy--sacrifices that are increasingly and dangerously fading from the collective memory of Russians and Americans alike.
M.G. Crisci is the author of seven books ranging from historical fiction (White Lily) to novels (such as Save the Last Dance.) and nonfiction (Papa Cado). His new book 7 Days in Russia—The Adventures of One American in Today’s Federation will be released later this year. Crisci increasingly speaks on U.S.-Russian relations and the need to promote greater cultural understanding between these two countries.
