Although Goering was the second man in Nazi Germany- he has not been much written about- Himmler, Goebbels - Hess, even Ribbentrop have English biographies- but few have tackled the subject of the Reichsmarschall. This biography has used the full range of German sources, covers all of Goerings life , and is well-written. I would have given it 5 stars -but Irvings pro- Nazi views sometimes show through- eg Goering was "a lion of a man".However, until anything better is written- this should be the standard biography of Goering.
