Overview

In Goering, Roger Manvell and Heinrich Fraenkel use first-hand testimonies and a variety of historical documents to tell the story of a monster lurking in Hitler’s shadows. After rising through the ranks of the German army, Hermann Goering became Hitler’s right hand man and was hand-picked to head the Luftwaffe, one of history’s most feared fighting forces. As he rose in power, though, Goering became disillusioned and was eventually shunned from Hitler’s inner circle. Alone at the end, he faced justice at the Nuremberg trials and was convicted of war crimes and crime against humanity. He committed suicide in prison before he could be hanged. Within these pages, Manvell and Fraenkel bring to life one of history’s most complicated and hated characters.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Review of Books
“Manvell and Fraenkel have produced...biographies of Goebbels, Goering, Himmler, and the men who tried to kill Hitler in 1944....To the best of my knowledge there are no better biographies in existence.”

The most complete & descriptive biography of Goering I've read. Extensive coverage of his drug addiction and his role in the plundering of Europe's most valued artwork as well as his role within Hitler's inner circle. You won't be disappointed.

Goering came out of World War I disillusioned, like many other German soldiers. Adolph Hitler had a message that the German people were willing to hear. The book shows that Goering was a man who loved both of his wives and was looking for a way to enjoy a better life. Even though he was a part of a terrible regime, his drug addiction may have mellowed him.

An excellent book on the behind the scene of Nazi land Germany before and after the war. Luckily for us the RUINED the Laftwaffe. He was an interesting guy. I wanted to know more about him after reading In the Garden Of Beasts with Pre-WWII american observations of Germany. Georing did not really fit in, he had a nice side at times. Perhaps the Opium made him kinder than the reast? :).
