David Irving What Happens When You Become A Real Historian In this historic (2009) two hour and 16 minute long video, the brilliant revisionist writer and researcher, David Irving, gives a detailed talk about his life and times.
He talks at length about his father, who rose to be a commander in the Royal Navy, and saw service at the battle of Jutland. How he wrote a number of books in naval themes, including one with David on the battle of Jutland. How his father was always a big inspiration to him and told him to make the best possible use of the time allotted to him on earth. David now believes, in his time available, he wants to finish, the last one of a series of books on Winston Spencer-Churchill, one on Himmler, and eventually his own biography. David says that his life has not been an easy one, having had served two prison terms (one in the UK, and another in Austria). The prison  in Austria was particularly bad, and David suffered walking difficulties for some time afterwards.
After attempting to finish university and volunteering for the RAF, he eventually took a course at a steel works (Thyssen) in Germany, where for years he worked on shifts, and began to learn fluent German. It was there he heard of the Dresden attack by the RAF, which killed up to 100,000 German civilians. He put adverts in German, British and American papers for witnesses and information on the atrocity. He even found a publisher through this method. He managed to speak to Bomber Harris, who had not wanted to carry out the raid, but was ordered to do so by Churchill. The book became a best seller, and David managed to write a large numbers of articles in British newspapers. David has always written what he has found in the archives, saying that unlike individuals like Andrew Roberts and Ian Kershaw, he would like his books to be bedrock in history. After all, they didn’t go to prison to defend what they wrote says David. David’s tome “Hitler’s War” managed to up a hornet’s nest from those didn’t like his conclusion that Hitler knew nothing of “homicidal gas chambers” at Auschwitz. They created bans from one country or another, smears in the papers, and denial of access to archives. The harassment reached a peak with the Penguin books trial where his enemies, with a $13,000,000 backing, and a process of “destabilizing”, got a ruling by the judge in their favour. Despite the legal chicanery, David has always found it in himself to carry on fighting for the truth. David talks of his family, marriages, 5 daughters and the effects it had on them, now dispersed around the world. He has few regrets, but feels deeply of the mass killing of innocent lives in wartime. David’s offer of a $1,000 payment to a historian, who can prove that Hitler knew of Auschwitz, still remains unclaimed. As David states, Guderian told Hitler that Auschwitz had been overrun. Hitler just says, alright, and nothing else.
