Goring's Secret - the Story of Hitler's Marshall

Episode 1 of 1

A newly unearthed collection of personal film reels provide an uncensored look at the private life of Hermann Goring, Hitler's devoted follower and second-in-command. The fascinating documentary GORING'S SECRET - THE STORY OF HITLER'S MARSHALL reveals footage of Goring as he preferred to see himself: at the height of his power, acclaimed by the masses; witnessing the German annexation of Austria in 1938; as Commander-in-Chief of the Luftwaffe; and as Hitler's most important confidant. Shot mostly in color, the films answer the question that has lingered in the decades since his Nuremburg conviction and subsequent suicide: how could a highly decorated World War I fighter pilot become such a corrupt and ruthless henchman of Hitler?
