‘The Goering Testament’ by George Markstein, publ. by Pan Books 1979, ISBN 0 330 25855 9

Filed under: Books — tvivf @ 2:25

 

This book has a good opening chapter which describes the last hours of the condemned Nazi leaders awaiting execution at Nuremberg. After that it’s rather downhill all the way to the end. The story concerns a letter that Goering is supposed to have written in his cell before his suicide and which was a rallying call to his followers to rise again and proclaim the doctrines of the Third Reich. All of the subsequent story is an endless chasing around in pursuit of this ‘testimony’, with a few lacklustre love scenes thrown in here and there.

Not great, but helped me get through a few airports. Every book has something.
