Adam Sisman gives us a compelling new biography of Hugh Trevor-Roper, the controversial historian who had it all but failed to produce the masterpiece that everybody expected of him. Sisman incisively explores the circumstances which led Trevor-Roper to make his infamous blunder of authenticating the forged ‘Hitler Diaries’. Sisman also intelligently considers Trevor-Roper’s feud with Evelyn Waugh and the intrigues of his turbulent personal life. An original and meticulous portrait, Sisman’s biography does full justice to a figure who was never less than fascinating.
