Product description


Selected in January as one of a dozen "Hottest Books" of the forthcoming year (SUNDAY TIMES)

richly rewarding on every level (Selina Hastings THE INDEPENDENT)

Sisman tells the story of Trevor-Roper with authority and relish..a perfect biography (Robert Harris SUNDAY TIMES)

detailed, judicious and entertaining, a great treat for those of us who enjoy bitchy don anecdotes (David Sexton EVENING STANDARD)

a fascinating biography, which deserves parity of esteem with Leslie Mitchell's Maurice Bowra (Eric Christiansen THE SPECTATOR)

This is an excellent biography.. beautifully written and admiringly presented (Anthony Howard NEW STATESMAN)

How lucky for Trevor-Roper, and for us, that the ideal biographer was here. It is impossible to praise Sisman's book too highly (A N Wilson THE OBSERVER)

Sisman provides a gripping narrative of how Trevor-Roper came to authenticate Hitler Diaries..This biography is bursting with similarly compelling episodes from Trevor-Roper's life (Tristram Hunt DAILY TELEGRAPH)

wonderfully complete and beautifully crafted (Craig Brown MAIL ON SUNDAY)

Excellent.. such a man makes a good story (Charles Moore DAILY TELEGRAPH)

Book Description

The first biography of the great historian whose career was made and unmade by Hitler.
