Editorial Reviews

Roland Green
The prolific and popular Hoyt's latest is a study of Herman Goering that emphasizes his organization and then progressively deteriorating leadership of Hitler's air force. Goering emerges as a classic example of an effective, even heroic junior combat leader (as a World War I ace) who was promoted beyond his level of competence, with ultimately disastrous consequences for both himself and his forces. He also seems to have been at first philosophically unsympathetic to much of the Nazi program; yet, out of consuming ambition, he subordinated himself so thoroughly to Hitler that in the end he became only a bloated caricature. Grisly but informative reading, adding to Hoyt's already large reputation.
