Hermann Wilhelm Göring (or Goering, ; 12 January 1893 – October 1945) was a German political and military leader as well as one of the party's most influential figures in Germany (NSDAP), which ruled Germany from 1933 to 1945.
He was a recipient of the Pour le Mérite ("The Blue Max"), a veteran World War I combat pilot pilot.
He was the last commander of Jagdgeschwader 1 (Jasta 1), the fighter wing led by Manfred von Richthofen. Göring, an early member of the Nazi Party, was among those wounded in Adolf Hitler's failed Beer Hall Putsch in 1923.
He began using morphine during his injuries and developed an addiction that lasted for the remainder of his life.
Göring was named Minister Without Portfolio in the new government after Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933.
One of his first acts as a cabinet minister was to control the founding of the Gestapo, which he ceded to Heinrich Himmler in 1934.
Göring amassed power and political capital after the establishment of the Nazi state, rising to become Germany's second most influential man.
He was named commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe (air force), a post he held until the end of the regime.
Göring was given the job of mobilizing all areas of the economy for war under his leadership after being named Plenipotentiary of the Four Year Plan in 1936, and he soon became one of the country's richest men.
In September 1939, Hitler appointed him as his successor and deputy in all of his companies.
He was bestowed the rank of Reichsmarschall, which granted him supremacy over all officers in Germany's armed forces following the Fall of France in 1940. Göring was at the height of his fame and acclaim by 1941.
Göring's standing with Hitler and with the German public fell as a result of the Luftwaffe's inability of preventing the Allied bombing of Germany's cities and resupplying surrounded Axis forces in Stalingrad, as the Second World War progressed.
Göring shifted away from military and political politics to devote more attention to collecting property and artwork, much of which was stolen from Holocaust refugees.
Göring told Hitler that he meant to commit suicide on April 22nd, 1945, granting permission to assume the Reich's leadership.
Since his request was an act of treason, Hitler barred Göring from all his positions, barred him from office, and ordered his deposition. Göring was found guilty of conspiracy, crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity at the Nuremberg trial.
He was sentenced to death by hanging but he committed suicide by ingesting cyanide the night before the term was carried out.
