Dr Daniel Lee publishes book to critical acclaim
5 October 2020
Dr Daniel Lee from Queen Mary University of London’s School of History has received critical acclaim for his book about little-known SS officer Dr Robert Griesinger.
The book, The SS Officer’s Armchair, tells the story of the life of Dr Robert Griesinger from Stuttgart, a low-ranking Nazi official who, like most Nazis outside of Hitler’s inner circle, has remained relatively unknown. As such the book offers a unique insight into one of the darkest periods of Europe’s history.
