David Irving reports:
(a) In 1975 the Germans published my Hitler und seine Feldherren (see panel left), and in 1977 the British/Americans, published Hitler's War. I discovered the Germans had chopped the first sixteen chapters off the book, the prewar chapters.
(b) Late in 1977 the Institut für Zeitgeschichte director Prof Dr Martin Broszat published a virulent 37-page attack on David Irving's biography, Hitler's War, in their quarterly journal (pdf, in German); they refused to publish a reply
(c) In 1978 I published those sixteen chapters in English (and later in German) as The War Path. There has been no revised edition of this yet.
(d) In 1991 we published a revised edition of Hitler's War. In 2001 we published a new re-revised edition.
(e) Macmillan Ltd in London told the author they were keeping it permanently in print. After coming under Jewish pressure in 1991, on Jul 6, 1992 Macmillan secretly ordered all warehouse stocks of the book destroyed; the author was not to be told, and there was to be no publicity. Their Papermac edition had sold tens of thousands of copies.
