Somewhat meandering, in that I never knew where the book was headed, but the ride itself was fun.

In the last chapter, he really has the knives out for H.R. Trevor-Roper, which I found interesting. (This book was written in the 1960s; Trevor-Roper's reputation never recovered after he "authenticated" the so-called Hitler Diaries in the 1980s.)
