one thing that has perplexed me over the years was how old herm was able to keep favorite son status with hitler. during the war good generals were sacked and replaced because they failed to meet expectations. yet for all his broken promises goering was able to retain control over the LW....which was probably one of the biggest mistakes adolf made imo. there were issues and rumors of drug use and sexual inclinations that didnt fit into the role model aryan race mold. in the back stabbing, climb your way to the top on the bones of your enemy, world of politics that even baffles me more if these were true it wasnt his downfall...as that makes him a security risk or at risk of being compromised....yet he out lived his fuhrer. how the hell did he do that?
