Hugh Trevor-Roper was not only one of the most gifted historians of his generation but also one of the finest letter-writers. Biographers Richard Davenport-Hines and Adam Sisman have brought together 100 letters that illustrate the range of Hugh Trevor-Roper’s life. Davenport-Hines explains what the letters reveal about the man, his intellectual sparkle, curiosity and playful irony. He also throws light on his triumphant The Last Days of Hitler, his embarrassment over the Hitler diaries and his stormy period as master of Peterhouse.

Davenport-Hines is a historian and literary biographer and former research fellow at the London School of Economics. He won the Wolfson prize for Dudley Docker: The Life and Times of a Trade Warrior.
