Would you have any suggestions where I can find out more about what it
meant to be a post-WWII military governor of Germany? Here is the
relative who I am researching:

"FRIED, HERBERT, Chicago, 111., Capt., USA, appointed military governor
of Hanover, Germany; reptd. Apr. 27, 1945."

I would like to know Captain Fried's duties and accomplishments. He was
reported to be the first (and maybe only) Jewish military governor at
that time.
