  • Hermann Wilhelm Göring (12 January 1893 – 15 October 1946) was a German politician and military leader, a leading member of the Nazi Party, second in command of the Third Reich, designated successor to Adolf Hitler, and commander of the Luftwaffe (German Air Force).

  • Conseguenze delle ripetute operazioni furono difatti la sua impotenza ufficiosa, una figlia non sua, la dipendenza dalla morfina, una spaventosa e irreversibile ipertrofia del ventre e la passione per gli anelli, le pellicce e i trenini elettrici, tanto che si dice che il suo migliore amico e noto alcoolizzato Martin Bormann usasse chiamarlo Frau Heidi, anche se non davanti a lui.
  • In September 1916, Göring piloted a biplane across enemy lines in the Verdun battle area. He spotted a motorcycle courier and turned to give chase. Using his machine guns, he fired upon the courier as the courier zipped down a country road. When the courier reached some farm buildings, Göring dropped a first bomb, which missed the motorcycle, and then a second bomb, which wrecked a building, and knocked over a large tank, and caused the motorcycle to crash, throwing the driver into a crater. Looping around, he saw the courier lying still. Giving a salute to the courier, Göring flew off. After the biplane left, the courier picked himself up and drove his motorbike to the French artillery area to continue with his mission.

abstract
  • Hermann Wilhelm Göring (or Goering; German:[ˈɡøːʁɪŋ] (File:Speaker Icon.svg listen); 12 January 1893 – 15 October 1946), was a German politician, military leader, and leading member of the Nazi Party (NSDAP). A veteran of World War I as an ace fighter pilot, he was a recipient of the coveted Pour le Mérite, also known as the "Blue Max". He was the last commander of Jagdgeschwader 1, the fighter wing once led by Manfred von Richthofen, the "Red Baron". A member of the NSDAP from its early days, Göring was wounded in 1923 during the failed coup known as the Beer Hall Putsch. He became permanently addicted to morphine after being treated with the drug for his injuries. He founded the Gestapo in 1933. Göring was appointed commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe (air force) in 1935, a position he held until the final days of World War II. By 1940 he was at the peak of his power and influence; as minister in charge of the Four Year Plan, he was responsible for much of the functioning of the German economy in the build-up to World War II. Adolf Hitler promoted him to the rank of Reichsmarschall, a rank senior to all other Wehrmacht commanders, and in 1941 Hitler designated him as his successor and deputy in all his offices. Göring's standing with Hitler was greatly reduced by 1942, with the Luftwaffe unable to fulfill its commitments and the German war effort stumbling on both fronts. Göring largely withdrew from the military and political scene and focused on the acquisition of property and artwork, much of which was confiscated from Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Informed on 22 April 1945 that Hitler intended to commit suicide, Göring sent a telegram to Hitler asking to assume control of the Reich. Hitler then removed Göring from all his positions, expelled him from the party, and ordered his arrest. After World War II, Göring was convicted of war crimes and crimes against humanity at the Nuremberg Trials. He was sentenced to death by hanging, but committed suicide by ingesting cyanide the night before the sentence was to be carried out.

Dowódca niemieckiego lotnictwa wojskowego, głownie dlatego ze lubił przelatywać wszystko. Brał czynny udział w I wojnie światowej, początkowo służąc w piechocie. Na skutek choroby wenerycznej, uniemożliwiającej mu dalszą służbę polową, uzyskał przeniesienie do lotnictwa. Od 1915 służył w eskadrze rozpoznawczej FIFA jako lewy skrzydłowy, następnie ukończył kurs masażu erotycznego i stał się panem do towarzystwa. W 1916 roku został zastrzelony i po zmartwychwstaniu powrócił w listopadzie 1916 do latania. W 1921 Göring podjął studia uniwersyteckie w Kambodży. Tam poznał Adolfa Hitlera i w 1922 wstąpił do SLD. W 1923 udał się do Włoch, tam najprawdopodobniej uzależnił się od morfiny, kokainy i tzw. zielska jamajskiego. W roku 1934 wraz z Himmlerem kierował akcją noc długich narządów rozrodczych, w czasie której dokonano masowych pseudomasonowych gwałtów za pieniądze. Napisał książkę Opowieści z Nadrenii, gdy patrzył z samolotu na posuwające się wojska alianckie w głąb Nadrenii i spierniczających stamtąd Niemców. Göring znany był ze swojego zamiłowania do fetyszy oraz luksusowego trybu życia. Już wcześniej w 1939 Hitler wyznaczył Göringa swoim chłopcem do wszystkiego. Göring z wrażenia i podniecenia zmarł po tzw. złotym strzale narkotycznym. Wcześniej jednak w 1935 poślubił znanego aktora porno Emmila Castro. Jego drużbą był sam Hitler w towarzystwie Króla Gejów.
  • The Malkavian who claims to be Hermann Göring appeared after World War II in Berlin, haunted by the two core beliefs that Hitler was still alive and out there, and that the dead of the war wanted to exact revenge against him. Shaken with paranoia and fear, he guides the Malkavian Clan within Berlin. When asked about his Embrace, he retells how he was taken by three Malkavians who carved sigils into his flesh and eventually sucked the life out of him. The rest of his memories is pale, but he recalls Project: Werewolf and has an adamant fear of Heinrich Himmler, the co-leader of the Final Reich group. Göring himself is not part of the group, but can command them as most members see him as one of the last relics of the Reich that remained.

  • Hermann Göring werd op 12 januari 1893 geboren als de tweede zoon van dr. Ernst Heinrich Göring, een rechter, en Franziska 'Fanny' Tiefenbaum. Hermann had één oudere broer, Karl-Ernst, en twee oudere zussen, Olga en Paula. Daarnaast had hij één jongere broer Albert, die zich later zou onderscheiden door Joden en dissidenten Nazi-Duitsland uit te helpen. Vader Heinrich had nog vijf andere kinderen uit een vorig huwelijk met Ida, die in 1879, na een huwelijk van tien jaar, kwam te overlijden. Hermann Wilhelm Göring heeft zijn voornamen te danken aan Hermann Epenstein en Keizer Wilhelm II. Hermann von Epenstein was een halfjoodse Oostenrijkse dokter die het leven redde van moeder Fanny en zus Olga toen er bij de bevalling, in Zuidwest-Afrika, complicaties optraden. Dokter Epenstein werd een goede vriend van de familie en stond bij de geboorte van Hermann erop diens peetvader te worden. In de loop der tijd werd de band tussen Fanny Göring-Tiefenbaum en Hermann von Epenstein steeds intiemer, ze werd uiteindelijk zijn minnares. Van Albert, de jongste broer van Hermann, wordt vermoed dat het een kind is van beide minnaars in plaats van Fanny en de officiële vader, Ernst Heinrich.
  • Hermann Göring (12 January 1893 - 15 October 1946) was a German politician and military leader who lived during the 19th and 20th centuries. He was one of the leading members of the Nazi Party before and during World War II.
  • After serving as a pilot in the Jasta 11 fighter wing in WWI, he became addicted to morphine and, resulting from that, became extremely obese. He joined the Nazi Party at 1922, becoming Adolf Hitler's de-facto deputy and presumed successor. At 1935, he assumed command over Germany's Air Force. At 1940, he received the rank of a Reichsmarshall. By 1943, after the Battle of Stalingrad, Göring lost much of his political power and retreated to his estate. In 1945, after it was obvious that Hitler was doomed to die in Berlin, he sent a telegram to the Führerbunker in which he declared that he would consider himself as the state's leader after Berlin would be completely isolated, Hitler was enraged and ordered his arrest, appointing Robert Ritter von Greim as commander of the Luftwaffe in his stead, ordering that he'll be arrested - and executed if Hitler would die. That order was not carried out, and Göring survived to be tried in Nüremberg by the Allies. He was convicted of committing crimes against humanity and war crimes, but took his own life before he could be executed.
