Over the last 70 years, in countless books and essays, Hermann Goring has been defined by his crimes and excess during the Third Reich and the Second World War. But his activities as a young career military officer in World War I have invariably been glossed over – until now. 'Hermann Goring – Fighter Ace' is the first in-depth look at Goring’s role as a military flyer and air combat leader from 1914 through the end of The Great War, and how those experiences shaped the personality that came to the world’s attention in 1939

About the Author:

Peter Kilduff has been studying and researching aviation history for over fifty years. He was a journalist and professional communicator for over forty years, and retired as Director of University Relations at his Alma Mater Central Connecticut State University.

Review:

“...reveals some genuine acts of heroism and displays of professional leadership. More intriguingly however, are hints of the anti Semitism, the narcissistic self-delusion, the penchant for self serving exaggeration and the talent for making influential contacts that emerge in the course of Goring’s rise.” (AVIATION HISTORY)

“At least eight biographies of Hermann Goering have appeared in English, yet none provide detailed coverage of his Great War career. Peter Kilduff’s volume fills that gap...an important contribution to WWI history...draws a portrait of an intriguing individual...” (BARRETT TILLMAN)

“... paints a fascinating picture of Hermann Goring known worldwide for his crimes during the Nazi regime but shown here as an intelligent, extremely talented and driven fighter pilot during the first World War. With extensive research including flying records and psychological evaluations, updated by current experts, and intimate knowledge of aviation, Kilduff explores the life and early military career of this larger-than-life tragic figure, who has been post-diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (and a subset called Nobel Prize Complex). ... filled with photographs and never-before printed drawings, tables of flying victories and enemy losses, an index, bibliography and extensive endnotes.” (Book News)

“At last, a book by an aviation historian providing a detailed study of Hermann Goring’s military career with emphasis on his service during WWI as a successful fighter pilot and leader... helps to explain the man he became and who, until now, has been known to us principally as an infamous Nazi leader. (Cross and Cockade)

“...concentrates on Goering’s generally neglected World War I career...Combine a top-flight narrative with many new photos and appendices that detail Goering’s victory claims, as well as those of pilots who flew with him throughout his career, and the men who became casualties under Goering’s command, and the result is a “must have” for anyone’s collection.” (James Streckfus)

“...an outstanding new work...superior...the very best account to date of Goring’s rather murky early life...” (Military ADVISOR)

“A master WWI aviation historian examines Göring's record as a military flyer and combat leader....reveals the extraordinary ambition, love of publicity and ruthlessness exhibited by Goring as a junior officer and commander, as well as during his horrendous Nazi career.” (Western Front Association)

“...a well written, carefully-considered and detailed account, backed up with exhaustive end-notes and reference sources to ease the path of the next generation of researcher... an absorbing page turner...” (Windsock)

“... a seminal and landmark work...a plethora of never before seen photos...a high-quality, scholarly researched work...absolutely essential.” (WWII History List)

“Undoubtedly what makes this book attractive immediately are the 75 photographs found on nearly every other page, which puts faces to the names and helps readers see the places that were important to Goring during his career as a German pilot in the First World War...a fresh look... (Aerodrome)
