"In a book he published many years before on the Vietnam War, he had referred "to the 6 million who were killed at Auschwitz and if I was to be asked now why did I write that, then I would have to quote the words of William Casey and I - 'I believe[d]', but since then, since having spent ten years writing the Hitler biography and since having worked in the world's archives, I've come to question that belief which was an oversimple belief.""

Six million killed at Auschwitz, said David Irving
Appearing as an expert witness on Nazi Germany at the 1988 trial of Ernst Zündel, David Irving said he once wrote that six million were killed at Auschwitz
From Barbara Kulaszka's book on the trial: (page 766)
David Irving's only book on Vietnam, was Von Guernica bis Vietnam (From Guernica to Vietnam)
which was published in 1982, and only in German. He offers it as a free download on his website
With the magic power of word search, I can't even find "Auschwitz" anywhere in the
book, but I don't speak or read German, and David Irving has posted the chapter
from Barbara Kulaszka's book on his website. So he clearly can't dispute it.
