Göring by David Irving: Further insight to decisions made at the top of the LW. Well written and researched.
Apocalypse1945: The destruction of Dresden by David Irving: Again a thoroughly well written and researched book.

JonS wrote:I have no reason to doubt that 'Rise and Fall' is the best book you've read, but it astonishes me that people still trot out anything by that author. Pretty much everything he's written has been called into question, especially since he's been shown to be fully prepared to make stuff up, or hide anything inconvienient, in order to advance his version of the way history should have been.

No, you're wrong there. Irving's books don't have errors. They have a repeated and proven pattern of deliberate lies, distortions, omissions, and fabrications. But no errors.
