Oberleutnant Heinz Göring

Post by Starinov » Mon Oct 07, 2002 8:52 am

I would like to know in which unit Oberleutnant Heinz Göring died when he was KIA. Was there any relation between Hermann Göring and the Oberleutnant?

Can somebody help on that one?
Thanks

Here you go! From a privately published booklet by Paul Anderson titled "The Unknown Göring." The service record is translated from the German documents found in the booklet. Great photos of Heinz in black Panzer uniform as well!
