In his first lecture on R. Meir Simcha of Dvinsk for Torah in Motion, history professor Marc B. Shapiro says: Hershel Schachter’s books are very interesting. The halachic stuff is great. Unfortunately, so much of the history is garbled. Rav [J.B.] Soloveitchik made a number of mistakes with history. His son Rav Haym Soloveitchik mentioned this as a reason for not republishing some of J.B.’s things.
