      This book was a fascinating look at Goering. I would recommend reading William Shirer's "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" as the ultimate book on Nazi Germany. However, having read that one, all of Manvell's books are excellent supplements that provide a 4/5(20). The Iron Man by Ted Hughes is a book that I came across due to the year four class I was placed in using the book for the basis of their Autumn terms literacy lessons.

The Iron Man: A Children's Story in Five Nights is a science fiction novel by British Poet Laureate Ted Hughes, first published by Faber and Faber in the UK with illustrations by George Adamson.

Described by some as a modern fairy tale, it describes the unexpected arrival in England of a giant "metal man" of unknown origin who rains destruction on the countryside by eating industrial farm. While it has some flaws (the broad sweep of some of the author's proclamations go far beyond Goering and his impact within Nazi Germany, as well as some minor typos), this book is a very insightful look into the machinations of the Nazi war machine, especially the heavy industries that made up Goering's commercial empire (the Reichswerke AG and the armaments and aircraft manufacturing sections /5(2).

A British scholar concentrates on Goering's role in the Nazi regime, his early successes and great later failures. Overy has done some archival research and he is rightly restrained about the sensational aspects of this wretched rise.

He is knowledgeable about Goering's Luftwaffe and air war in general, but sketchy on the history of the regime. An uneven, readable book. This, the only official biography of Hermann Goering, was a bestseller in Germany and in the English speaking world when first published in Written by one of Goering’s senior staff members, Erich Gritzbach, this book details the many astonishing services which Goering Author: Erich Gritzbach.

A-level - Life in Nazi Germany, – Last updated: 26th September The Iron Man is called a 'man', and he displays many of the required characteristics of personhood, but he remains just a machine, or so it appears, and in the early part of the story he is treated as such, as there is an attempt to destroy him on the basis of functional problems he causes, without regard to any rights or dignities he may s:   In Goering, Roger Manvell and Heinrich Fraenkel use first-hand testimonies and a variety of historical documents to tell the story of a monster lurking in Hitler’s rising through the ranks of the German army, Hermann Goering became Hitler’s right hand man and was hand-picked to head the Luftwaffe, one of history’s most feared fighting s:   Just a quick comment.

This is the same book - same pictures and all - as Overy's book simply entitled, "Goering." Either volume is a great biography of the man and his Reich responsibilities.
