I have a funny feeling most reading this forum know better than to bite, but I can't help myself.

The author, David Irving, is possibly one of the most obnoxious nazi apologists left alive in the world today.

Throw his name into google and take a look. For extra fun append +nazi.

I've not yet had time to read the e-book linked above, so I'm not sure if it's in the same style as his other work. The page title "The International Campaign for Real History" at the top of the page does little to inspire much hope. Perhaps "the international campaign for revisionist history" would be more appropriate - they wouldn't even have to change the abbreviation.

Just so you know.

Well until we read the book why shoot the thing down because of speculation?

He was considered a good historian in his early years, his "Destruction of Dresden" was very respected, actually. Then, as he got older, he started becoming more and rabid and unhitched and finally came out of the closet as a full nazi-apologist, even disimssing the endl√¬∂sung as Allied propaganda.

Now it seems he can't even sell his books, since he gives them away on the Net. A nutcase who is best avoided.

I don't know what he has been up to lately, but his Rommel bio, "The Trail of the Fox", is one of the greatest books on WWII and was also very popular. Based on past merit alone, he is worth reading.

Revisionism is no worse anywhere in the world than it is right here in America today.

its very sad

i expect what started out as concern over genuine (but minor) revisionism the other way by the victorious allies has flipped into total denial of the historical facts and the resultant consipacy/paranoia has developed into full blown los of touch with reality

That is a really cool picture of those cartridges. I have an Oerlikon 20mm (empty round, that is) my uncle gave me from 1943 (he was a navy gunner on merchant ships in the N. Atlantic) and it's a good reminder of why I never want (real) military ordinance aimed in my direction.

I like Irving's books. Destruction of Dresden, Hitler's War, and the G√¬∂bbels book were ok... what struck me as weird was how he blaimed the attrocities against certain civilians as Himmler's work, never Hitler's.
