Note 034
by Joachim C. Fest

Schwerin von Krosigk , Es geschah in Deutschland. When Goring visited Italy in 1942, Ciano noted in his diary:

'At the station he wore a great sable coat, something between what motorists wore in 1906 and what a high grade prostitute wears to the opera' (see Bullock, Hitler).

Other fantastic outfits are described by E. von Manstein, Verlorene Siege (Bonn, 1960), and Heinz Guderian, Panzer Leader (New York and London, 1952). Also, collectively, Sommerfeldt, Ich war dabei.

From Chapter 6, Hermann Göring , Part 2 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
