Goering in Culture
Goering (or Göring), Hermann [(hair-mahn geu-ring)]

A German political leader and general of the twentieth century. Goering, a close friend of Adolf Hitler, held several high positions in the Nazi government, including leadership of the air force, the Luftwaffe; until the Battle of Britain, his aerial warfare methods were enormously successful (see blitzkrieg). At the Nuremberg trials for war criminals after the German defeat, Goering was sentenced to death, but he committed suicide before he could be executed.
