Mr Stivers, now 78, said he had been persuaded to tell his story after nearly 60 years of silence by his daughter, and by the fact that the statute of limitations on his crime had expired. His telephone had been disconnected yesterday. Most said it was plausible, but warned that it might now be impossible to determine the truth of what had happened. Goering, Hitler's appointed deputy and heir, and head of the Luftwaffe, was sentenced to death for war crimes in October after a flamboyantly defiant performance in the dock, where he questioned the legitimacy of the Nuremberg tribunal, and defended the Third Reich.

On October 15, the eve of his execution, a guard saw him put his hand to his mouth and then choke. By the time a medic arrived, Goering was dead. Glass shards and traces of cyanide were found in his mouth. He left a note addressed to the allied occupation authorities, declaring: "I would have had no objection to being shot. However, I will not facilitate execution of Germany's Reichsmarschall by hanging!
For the sake of Germany , I cannot permit this.

As one of the white-helmeted guards at the Nuremberg trials, Mr Stivers was allowed to chat with the famous Nazi prisoners. He spoke pretty good English.

We'd talk about sports, ballgames. He was a flier, and we talked about Lindbergh," he told the Los Angeles Times. Before the war Goering had awarded a medal to Charles Lindbergh, the first man to fly solo nonstop across the Atlantic. One day, Mr Stivers was approached outside an officers' club by a pretty, dark-haired girl who told him her name was Mona.

She teased him when he told her he was a guard, saying he did not look like one. To prove it, he said, "the next day I guarded Goering and got his autograph and handed that to her". The following day he and Mona went to a house, and he was introduced to two men who called themselves Erich and Mathias. Mr Stivers said that twice he took notes hidden in a pen to Goering before taking in to him the glass vial that he had been told was medicine.
When he looked for his new-found girlfriend to return the pen, she had disappeared. I guess she used me," Mr Stivers said. He was never in a bad frame of mind. He didn't seem suicidal.
Fifteen years ago, Mr Stivers admitted his suspicions to his daughter who convinced him to tell his story for posterity's sake. Well, just barely it is.

This book provided a fascintating insight into the origin, and development, of a pioneering combat pilot. The book also considers the probable mental disorder which led to destabilising fantacism and ego mania which contributed to Goring's' ascendancy during the First World War and his ultimate downfall in The parameters of the book focus solely upon Goring's' pre-Nazi existence and covers the origins of his delusion via the opulent trappings of a parental Menage a Trois; his interface This book provided a fascintating insight into the origin, and development, of a pioneering combat pilot. The parameters of the book focus solely upon Goring's' pre-Nazi existence and covers the origins of his delusion via the opulent trappings of a parental Menage a Trois; his interface with the overt and officially-sanctioned anti-semitism propagated by the educational elite, and finally, his elevation to the status of a war time hero during his service as a soldier and latterly, as a pilot.
The precise nature of the timeline covered allows for a deeper-level of analysis of the socio-economic milieu which provided the foundation for the Third Reich. Whilst also highlighting that, despite the voluminous works devoted to the charisma of Adolf Hitler, the actual origins of the Third Reich lay in pre-existent cultural norms, and the inability to accept defeat due to a combination of national chauvinism and personal delusion in equal measure.
In this sense, the development of Goring's personality disorder can be seen to have precisely tracked the rise of the fall of the Reich's. This in turn also explains why, when the end came, it was as much due to his personal inability to accept judgement by peer groups outside of the realm of his personal World, as much as it was a recognition that the once young boy with the World at his feet, whom had once lived in an opulent life in a castle, had finally been betrayed by the ghosts that traversed it's dark corridors, as much as the socio-economic perversions which placed him there in the first place.
