“Brilliant … Deploying him against conspiracy theorists is a bit like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.” So says The Mail on Sunday of Richard J. Evans and the forensic scrutiny he subjects widely discussed claims involving Hitler and the Nazis to. In The Hitler Conspiracies, the renowned historian analyses five long discredited but increasingly popular theories, including Churchill suppressing peace terms, a bunker escape to South America and a bid by the Jewish people to undermine civilisation itself. The former Cambridge Regius Professor of History and author of The Third Reich Trilogy joins educator Trudy Gold in conversation.
