I found his usage of contemporary Polish news media sources as especially prescient in backing up his (completely rightful) claim that he Polish harboured and exhibited reckless aggression towards both the German minority within the redrawn Polish borders and towards the resurgent German Reich itself. Other historians have chosen to completely ignore these sources.
I myself own 3 copies of the original 1989 version of the book, and 3 copies of the German edition printed in different years. And all of them contain sources. The German version, although I cannot read it, does contain a 4 page "Einleitung" (Introduction) written by Hoggan that contains 25 footnotes. This has gone completely unpublished in the English IHR edition.
Also, because I myself am actually reconstructing a version of the book including the sources from the German/English edition, I have found on at least one occasion, in the first chapter of the English version that the 4th footnote is missing. However it is still present in the notes at the end of the book, the number just isn't on the page where it should be.
I'm not sure how many errors like this are within the book, but by the time my republished edition comes out I'll be able to say with 100% certainty whether some sources are missing or not.
Hoggan claimed on page 248 of TFW relating to the daughter of the President of Czechoslovakia, Emil Hacha, that she denied any pressure was put on her father in March 1939. He included no source. But I did some research and managed to find the Nuremberg interview with Hacha's daughter, Milada Rádlová, and confirmed that what Hoggan wrote regarding this was seemingly untrue: https://forum.codoh.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=8342&p=97168#p97168
. However, there's still room for speculation, and Rádlová's word isn't bulletproof.
Carlos Whitlock Porter is still trying to find Hoggan's next of kin to find the original manuscripts for TFW and the other books in the trilogy of the Second World War that Hoggan wrote. Although it's unlikely that this endeavour will be successful.
Mark Weber of the IHR had promised, also according to Porter, that he would republish TFW in 2016. It's been 4 years and Weber hasn't done a damn thing. In Porter's rightful indignation, he has been editing his website every year to show how many years have passed since Weber promised to republish the book. "The rights to the English original are held by Mark Weber of the IHR, who claims he plans to republish it. I'll believe it when I see it.
Hoggan was also the author of at least 2 highly informative three- volume sets of books published in German under the titles (which retranslate back into English as THE BLIND CENTURY and THE AMERICAN DISASTER), which he could never get published in English, although he was an American history professor and an American citizen! He also wrote another book, published in German only, entitled DER UNNÖTIGE KRIEG 1939-45: GERMANY MUST PERISH (= THE UNNECESSARY WAR 1939-45: GERMANY MUST PERISH. The whereabouts of his next of kin and/or the original manuscripts is unknown. I have, and have read, all these books). - C.P."

Millions more were born and died believing the nefarious myths and outright lies about the Second World War. This book goes some small way to providing the truth, but no one cares enough to move it into the light of day for new generations to discover and learn from.
Why is there all this attention and talk about finding and publishing the facts of concentration camps, but almost no interest amongst 'revisionists' in doing the same for the unfolding of the outbreak of the war itself? In my opinion this is something that requires rebalancing. The latter deserves at least the same attention as the former. Surely, if revisionism can channels it's energies into overturning that table of lies with a series of high quality, well-resources, well-written studies and books, this will generate some positive attention which can then be directed towards the concentration camp material? Diversification, if you like.
I couldn't agree with you more. This has been my exact feelings for years now. Before I joined the forum 2 years ago.
The Holocaust stuff is important and great, but it's all apart, perhaps one of the most extravagant parts, of a much larger narrative and lie. That lie is the mythology surrounding Fascism and National Socialism as a whole. Ideologically and historically.
The Holocaust was invented to buttress the previous claims the Allies made against Germany in order to justify themselves and sanctify German "barbarity" so that no possible understanding could come from the reasons Germany and Hitler, did what they did. Mainly, acting in the pursuit of German interests in Europe and the world. Rebelling against the conventional political order, and the balance of power as it was enforced by Britain, the United States, France and even Russia.
Once the Holocaust narrative took hold, nothing would make a great many people think about the war guilt question, nobody would be brave enough to do so, because who wants to defend the Genocidal crazy Nazis? Nobody. And this is really just because a great many people had no sympathy for the National Socialists anyway, not least Germans themselves. In reality, the German expression of National Socialism IS the expression of the German essence. To the Anglopiles, Russophiles, Marxists, Liberals and all the rest around the world, this was even more repulsive.
The conventional war guilt narrative needs desperate revisionist attention. As does the peacetime years of the Third Reich. It all needs to be extensively revaluated from the sensible position the Revisionists currently hold. The Holocaust is but one part in a larger story of anti-German, anti-Nazi propaganda.
