Indeed. He is sorely missed. Died too early.


Its taken me years to come around to some of the later and tamer historians like Dan Snow. Holmes was often quite irascible and scathing of fellow historians in this writings but at the same time sincere in his own, brutally factual, accounts.  I like that he didnt allow his publicist to airbrush him into being cuddly or whistful.

Hstory is always best served in a tweed jacket and with an air of authority.
