Letter to American Historian,
Professor Christopher Browning

Christopher R Browning
Professor of History

London, August 4, 1997

Dear Dr Browning,[1]
I wrote you this letter a few weeks ago c/o Cambridge University Historical Journal, and apologise if you already received it. I have just noticed that you once published a reply to Martin Broszat's review in the Institut für Zeitgeschichte journal VfZ, 1977, of my book Hitler's War. As you can imagine I was not too pleased by Broszat's review, and he refused me permission to publish my own response which I thought was rather shabby (for example: he accused me of manipulating translations of the Tischgespräche, without realising that what I had used were the original Bormann-Vermerke, provided to me by François Genoud).

Could I ask you for a copy of your response, which appears to have been published in the January 1981 VfZ? I would happily pay copying costs, or perhaps you would accept in response a copy of my published German transcription (and annotation) of the entire 1938 Goebbels diary.


Yours faithfully,
David Irving
