Hugh Trevor-Roper

Hugh Trevor-Roper was perhaps the most brilliant historian of his generation. An expert in the history of early modern Britain and Nazi Germany, he was Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford University and latterly Master of Peterhouse College, Cambridge. He received a life peerage in 1979. He was the author of numerous books, including his famous investigation of Hitler's last days, The Last Days of Hitler. During World War II, Trevor-Roper served in the Secret Intelligence Service and this book contains his journals written during the war and in its immediate aftermath.

Richard Davenport-Hines is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and the Royal Society of Literature and a past winner of the Wolfson Prize for History. He is the author of many books, including A Night at the Majestic (2006) and The Pursuit of Oblivion (2001). He edited Hugh Trevor-Roper's Letters from Oxford (2006) and is a regular reviewer for the Sunday Telegraph, Sunday Times, History Today, and other publications.
