Historian and author David Irving (right) will himself become the subject of history books after losing his High Court libel action this week over claims that he was a holocaust denier. Mr Justice Gray ruled that Irving was anti-Semitic and racist. Irving, who wrote Hitler's War, could now face defence costs of £2m. Professor Deborah Lipstadt, author of Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory - a book which Irving said had destroyed his livelihood - says she feels 'exceptionally vindicated' by the outcome of the case which had been fought for her by publisher Penguin Books, represented by Davenport Lyons. Irving, who represented himself and said that there was no basis for the book's claim that he had distorted statistics and documents, is considering an appeal.
