Adam Sisman Hugh Trevor-Roper: The Biography

The life of the great historian whose career was made and unmade by Hitler Clever, witty and sophisticated, Trevor-Roper was the most brilliant historian of his generation. Notorious for his acerbic attacks on other historians, he catastrophically tainted his own reputation when he authenticated the forged ‘Hitler Diaries’. But there was much more to his life than this: from wartime code-breaking to grilling Nazis while the trail was still fresh in 1945, to his formidable post-war feuds with prominent figures of his day, and his secret and passionate affair with an older, married woman. Adam Sisman is the author of several widely acclaimed biographies including A.J.P Taylor, and Boswell’s Presumptuous Task. He lives in Somerset.
