. . . "That's not the field I'm in." Which makes the selection of Evans as an expert witness even odder than at first sight. It soon became apparent that he was not an expert on the Third Reich. He did not know who Albert Speer was (Hitler's armaments minister, 1942-45), nor Otto Abetz (Hitler's ambassador in France throughout WW2). His knowledge of colloquial German was nil; he clung with pathetic determination to the briefs prepared for him by his more knowledgeable students.
