Hoyt, Edwin, P.


1st ed., 1990. 207 pp., 31 photo-plates. D.j., 22 x 14cm. FINE. The author recreates the events of World War II through the eyes of the Fuhrer's second-in-command, Goering. He follows Goering's fortunes from the height of his glamour and mass popularity when he commanded the Luftwaffe in the victorious Blitzkrieg attacks on Poland and France, to the beginning of his fall when the Nazis failed to dominate the skies in the Battle of Britain. Here is how the man, first Hitler's showpiece and finally his scapegoat, who had everything to gain from the Weimar republic gambled it all on the German people's lust for power.
