Alan Wykes was an author and journalist , Alan Wykes was a prolific storyteller with a prodigious memory for historical detail. Down the years much of his work was in collaboration with others, a few of them better known as biographers than he was himself. In Noel Barber's final work Daughter of the Prince, published two years ago, it was Wykes who managed to finish the last two- thirds of the book on his own when Barber fell tragically ill and died suddenly. Wykes had a sharp eye while 'looking at the field' and managed to hit upon titles with such lethal subjects as The Doctor and His Enemy (1964; about syphilis) and Lucrezia Borgia (1970), Hitler (1970), Goebbels (1971), Himmler (1972) and Heydrich (1972).
