The true story of the Goering brothers, one a Nazi war criminal; the other an anti-Nazi resistance fighter They were the most unlikely siblings: one, Adolf Hitler's most trusted henchman, the other a fervent anti-Nazi. Hermann Goering was a founding member of the Nazi Party who became commander of the Luftwaffe, ordering the terror bombing of civilians and prompting the use of slave labor in his factories. His brother, Albert, loathed Hitler's regime and saved hundreds, possibly thousands, from Nazi persecution. Here, for the first time, James Wyllie brings Albert out of the shadows and explores the extraordinary relationship of the Goering brothers. Albert deferred to Hermann as head of the family but spent nearly a decade working against his brother's regime. If he had been anyone else, he would have been imprisoned or executed. Despite their extreme and differing beliefs, Hermann sheltered his brother from prosecution and they remained close throughout the war. This is a powerful story of how Nazi Germany divided families and the legacy Hermann Goering left behind.
