Read full description of the books Goebbels: Mastermind of the Third Reich:Irving is, and this is a generous assessment, one of the most controversial aspirants to the title of 'historian' to address the Second World War era. He has been described as a 'revisionist', and a 'denier'. His work appears, at first glance, as impressive; full of lengthy citations of archival and interview sources, criticism of scholarly work, and distinctions that to a casual reader seem to suggest an encyclopedic knowledge of relevant material. As Irving's increasingly erratic and extreme pronouncements indicate a wilder and ever-more problematic approach to history, politics, and professionalism, however, most of his writing has come under criticism.
All of this being said, a few themes emerged from my reading of Goebbels: Mastermind of the Third Reich (that at over 900 pages - could easily be argued is too long for its own good).

Read information about the authorDavid Irving is a British historian, who is accused of trivializing the holocaust. His books are mostly about the second world war and the Third Reich including topics like Josef Goebbels, Winston Churchill and the bombings of Dresden. In 1996 Irving filed a libel lawsuit against Penguin books and lost, the judge finding Irving guilty of deliberate and gross distortions of history. This lawsuit resulted in Irving's 2002 bankruptcy. In 2005 he was arrested and jailed for a year in Austria, for lectures he gave in 1989 in which he "trivialized the holocaust". Irving has been barred from entering several countries because of his stance on the holocaust.
