Galland, information received 16 May 1945
[Extract only from a long report]
AAFO: Did Göring himself dismiss you or did you resign?
Galland: It was gradually made impossible for me. It was a very slow job engineered by the man who then usurped my post, Gollob, for reason of private hatred and envy. He first got behind all the bomber people, including Pelz and Goring, in order to get the job himself; with this aim in view he contacted Himmler and started the ball rolling by applying to be transferred to the SS, simply to get some pull. Whenever the SS or Himmler were mentioned to the Reichsmarschall, he ceased raising objections.
AAFO: Was Göring under house arrest during the autumn of last year?
Galland: No. I should have heard about it. [ ]
