Quote

Robert Jackson is an American prosecutor summed up Hermann Goring's career

" He was half man half gangster. He stuck up a pudgy finger in every pie. He equally adept at massacring opponents and at the framing scandals to get rid of stubborn generals. He built up the Luftwaffe and hurled it at his defenseless neighbors, he was among the fore most in haring Jews out of the land "
