IF IT were not for Michael Hoffman and his regular
would never have known about you or your literary works at
I want you to know that I just finished your "Hitler's
War" 2 volume set. It took me about 3 weeks of
nighttime reading. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Extremely well
written. I appreciated your footnotes as well.
I'm sure you speak to many people, I wanted to brief you on
who I am. I am computer scientist in the finance card
industry, yet a person whose passion is WWII history,
specifically the Nazi era and even late 19th century German
great-grandparents were of Austrian/German heritage. I am
proud of my heritage and even married a German/American girl
17 years ago this July. I have always wanted to know the
real truth about Hitler, the Nazis in general, and the
real answers on the
have answered these quite well. What I would like to do is
re-read your 2 volume set (my wife thinks I'm nuts, but
that's ok), and do a cross-tab document of timeline by
individual. This would require notes on your chapters, but I
think it would be fun. There were so many personnel changes
after 1942 that it's difficult to keep track of them all.
Anyway, thanks for an excellent work and job well done.
will probably read your "Rise and Fall of the Luftwaffe"
next. Without a doubt, Goering was a blithering idiot that
should've been sacked years earlier. What a disaster! And
even Speer...how disappointing after I spent so much time on
again. Keep up your excellent work! May the Lord God bless
you and your family.
David Irving notes:
and Fall of the Luftwaffe was the biography which I
wrote of Field-Marshal Erhard Milch, second-in-command of
Hermann ("I decide who's a Jew") Göring. It was
published in England by Weidenfeld & Nicolson, and in
the United States by Little, Brown Inc., Boston.
