Irving pleaded guilty to the charge of "trivialising, grossly playing down and denying the Holocaust". Irving stated in his plea that he changed his opinions on the Holocaust, "I said that then based on my knowledge at the time, but by when I came across the Eichmann papers, I wasn't saying that anymore and I wouldn't say that now.
The Nazis did murder millions of Jews. Later, Irving declared himself shocked by the severity of the sentence. He had reportedly already purchased a plane ticket home to London.

In October a controversy erupted in Norway over the invitation of David Irving to speak at the Norwegian Festival of Literature. Several of Norway's most distinguished authors protested against the invitation.

Irving has been invited to discuss his concept of truth in light of his activity as a writer of historical books and the many accusations he has been exposed to as a consequence of this. Lars Saabye Christensen and Roy Jacobsen were two authors who had threatened to boycott the festival on account of Irving's invitation and Anne B. Ragde stated that Sigrid Undset would have turned around in her grave. As the festival has as its subsidiary name "Sigrid Undset Days", a representative of Undset's family had requested that the name of the Nobel laureate be removed in connection with the festival.
Days after the controversy had started, the invitation was rescinded. The head of the Norwegian Festival of Literature, Randi Skeie, deplored what had taken place, stating "Everything is fine as long as everyone agrees, but things get more difficult when one doesn't like the views being put forward. According to editor-in-chief Sven Egil Omdal of Stavanger Aftenblad the opposition to Irving's participation at the festival appeared as a concerted effort and Omdal suggested campaign journalism from two of Norway's largest newspapers, Dagbladet and Aftenposten and Norway's public service broadcaster NRK.
David Irving commented that he had not been told that the festival was going to present him as a liar,  and that he was preparing a lecture about the real history of what took place in Norway during World War II , contrary to what official historians have presented. Irving stated that he had thought the Norwegian people to be made of tougher stuff.

Irving, once held in regard for his expert knowledge of German military archives, was a controversial figure from the start. His interpretations of the war were widely regarded as unduly favourable to the German side.
At first this was seen as personal opinion, unpopular but consistent with full respectability as a historian. By , however, Irving had begun to reject the status of the Holocaust as a systematic and deliberate genocide. He soon became the main proponent of Holocaust denial. This, along with his association with far-right circles, dented his standing as a historian. A marked change in Irving's reputation can be seen in the surveys of the historiography of the Third Reich produced by Ian Kershaw.
In the first edition of Kershaw's book The Nazi Dictatorship in , Irving was called a "maverick" historian working outside the mainstream of the historical profession. The description of Irving as a historian, rather than a historical author, is controversial, with some publications since the libel trial continuing to refer to him as a "historian"  or "disgraced historian",  while others insist he is not a historian, and have adopted alternatives such as "author"  or "historic writer". He also said that Irving was "not in the top class" of military historians.

Archived from the original on 20 December Retrieved 27 March But if we mean by historian someone who is concerned to discover the truth about the past, and to give as accurate a representation of it as possible, then Irving is not a historian.
Those in the know, indeed, are accustomed to avoid the term altogether when referring to him and use some circumlocution such as 'historical writer' instead.
Irving is essentially an ideologue who uses history for his own political purposes; he is not primarily concerned with discovering and interpreting what happened in the past, he is concerned merely to give a selective and tendentious account of it to further his own ideological ends in the present.
