Who's Who

A.J.P Taylor

A.J.P. Taylor on one of those surprising outsiders with a touch of mischief – in this case a man whose political career spanned nearly sixty years.

A.J.P. Taylor gives a decidedly mid-20th century view of a mid-19th century war, its aims, and legacy. Jeremy Black offered his own historiographical analysis in 2009.

Lord Beaverbrook’s close acquaintance with the two War Leaders began in 1911; his reflections on them had not been published in full before this August 1973 article. With introduction by A.J.P. Taylor and separate analysis by Andrew Roberts.
