I have been a fan of his since the '60's. His insightful research led me into revisionist history, along with Barnes and James J. Martin's great works.
There may be issues, looking back, where I would disagree with him now, but his was one of the great, lone voices in the wilderness calling to all of us to look carefully at we know and believe, and be willing to take a stand indepencently of others.
He will be missed.
