Description
A superlative biography of one of Britain's foremost historians. No stranger to controversy and conflict, and with a particular fondness for gossip, the more malicious the better, Trevor-Roper (1914-2003) upset a lot of people during his career. Other historians, in particular, were the target of his spite and malice and his unfortunate epitaph was his catastrophic authentication of the forged 'Hitler Diaries'.

. . . a fine and serious biography which, on page after page, has made me laugh out loud. SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
