Hermann Göring

A hero fighter pilot of World War I, Hermann Göring was an early member of the Nazi party and close associate of Adolf Hitler. Göring held numerous positions in the Nazi hierarchy, and chief among these was the post of commander of the Luftwaffe, the German Air Force, during World War II. As the war progressed, Göring fell somewhat out of favor with Hitler as his promises proved hollow. The Luftwaffe failed to disrupt the evacuation of Commonwealth troops at Dunkirk or to gain control of the skies over the English Channel during the Battle of Britain. The Luftwaffe was unable to deliver enough supplies to sustain the encircled Sixth Army at Stalingrad, and Allied bombers raided German cities despite Göring’s promise that such raids would never occur. After the war, Göring was convicted of war crimes during the Nuremberg Trials and sentenced to death. He cheated the hangman by committing suicide.
