Call Sign, White Lily
The importance and magnitude of the Soviet sacrifices made during World War II are so great that they are almost impossible to comprehend. Grief and loss of human life on a scale beyond belief, and heroic actions by comrades compelled to protect the Motherland – all stories that are vital to Russian history and indeed, the history of the free world today. M. G. Crisci, moved to make the Russian tragedy a part of the public eye, decided to tell the story of a famous heroine to encapsulate the fighting spirit and patriotism of the Soviet men and women: the world’s first female fighter pilot, Lilia Litvyak, became the vehicle of his storytelling. An unlikely hero, a diminutive and beautiful woman, she challenged the traditionalist chauvinism of her day and rose through the ranks as an acclaimed and feared fighter pilot, the White Lily.
The story is poignant and powerful. The reader will be rewarded with a magnificent tale of patriotic integrity and characters that must be admired, and acts of valor and loyalty that embody the dedication of undying love and devotion to country and countrymen.
