Lilia Litvyak (1921-1943) became the world’s first female-fighter-pilot in the history of the world. Litvyak rose in a male-dominated society to become one of Russia’s greatest World War II heroes. Call Sign, White Lily also tells the story of how an American with no Russian ancestry came to know Litvyak, visit her gravesite and monument in a tiny section of the Eastern Ukraine, speak to those that knew her and dig through long-buried records on her life and death.
