“Hundreds of bodies, riddled with German bullets, were washed out to sea by the gentle swell of the waves.”
Alex von Tunzelmann, Indian Summer: The Secret History of the End of an Empire

“One of these things doesn’t actually happen in The Man in the Iron Mask, and instead comes from the 2009 Telugu movie Magadheera; but its inclusion would not have made this film much less accurate.”
Alex von Tunzelmann, Reel History: The World According to the Movies

“The Trujillo and Duvalier regimes were among the most kleptocratic, sadistic, repressive and murderous in the entire twentieth century – a century which, tragically, provided plenty of competition. The State Department knew what was going on in these countries. And yet the idea that Fidel Castro was the worst of these leaders took hold and stuck, regardless of the evidence – and the bodies – piling up.”
Alex von Tunzelmann, Red Heat: Conspiracy, Murder and the Cold War in the Caribbean
