    Thanks for the notice. He did a great piece of work.

      Another historian I admired.
      His work on Hitler is unsurpassed, but I put a thin question mark on how sympathetically he portrayed Speer, whom he was able to meet. The reason that of all Nazi's, Speer is the one best liked/least detested by the general public, is because of how Fest portrayed him; giving him credibility for his claim to have known nothing of the Holocaust, or perhaps just enough not to want to find out more.
      I sometimes think Speer just wrapped him around his finger.
