Professor Richard Evans just after his talk on "The Third Reich at War" at the University of Cambridge tonight. A distinguished author and historian, he is Regius Professor of Modern History at the university and also the Chairman of the Faculty of History. He was speaking to a large gathering as a part of the first Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
