Interrogation of Hermann Goering

(May 10, 1945)

General Carl Spaatz commanded U.S. Strategic Air Forces in Europe in 1944. On May 10, 1945, he interrogated Reich Marshal Hermann Goering at Ritter Schule, Augsburg, Germany. Spatz described the prisoner: “Reich Marshal Goering was standing in a small office of the school wearing grayish wool, no medals but epaulets of a Field Marshal; (that is, a large eagle, a small Swastika, and crossed batons.) He had a silver ring on the third finger of his right hand. Blue eyes, ruddy not unpleasant face, big thighs, tan boots.”
