"History is always a question of perception. So whenever you read history, any kind of history, it is always perception. There is always a tendency unbeknownst to the writer and you have to read the historical context, and you have to read the mood of the time, and you have to understand the argument within the context of the time. So, then it becomes fascinating. You will never have the full context…that is an illusion. But, you will get snippets of it." - Werner Herzog
