Product Description

'The highest form of thriller . . . non-stop excitement' The Times

INCLUDES THE FIRST CHAPTER OF ROBERT HARRIS'S FORTHCOMING NOVEL, MUNICH

What if Hitler had won the war?

It is April 1964 and one week before Hitler's 75th birthday. Xavier March, a detective of the Kriminalpolizei, is called out to investigate the discovery of a dead body in a lake near Berlin's most prestigious suburb.

As March discovers the identity of the body, he uncovers signs of a conspiracy that could go to the very top of the German Reich. And, with the Gestapo just one step behind, March, together with an American journalist, is caught up in a race to discover and reveal the truth - a truth that has already killed, a truth that could topple governments, a truth that will change history.

This entirely imaginary account of how Nazi Germany would have been like in the event of Germany winning the Second World War.
It is convincing and a further reminder of the thankfulness we all should feel, including Germans, that the Nazis lost.
An especially interesting aspect of the book is the post war coverup of the Nazi Death Camps and the hubris of some of the worst in power.

Harris uses a clever narrative device to relate the greatest atrocity of the 20th Century, and to show that massive crime is still massive crime from any perspective. Like Pompeii, Officer and a Spy, and Enigma, his fictional portrayal brings History to life.

This is masterfully written novel that explores the possibility that Hitler and his henchmen won WWII. This is a very scary description of life in the alternative state. This is electrifying and well researched. I do enjoy Robert Harris.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fictional look at Nazi Germany that shines a spotlight on their underpinning evil 25 April 2017
By Ted Weber - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Fatherland is set in 1964 Berlin with the Nazis still in power, having taken control of Europe but fighting a cold war against the remnant Soviets (east of the Urals) and the U.S. (who has defeated Japan but not fought Germany). A police detective and former U-boat commander, Xavier March, is thrust into a conspiracy that, if unraveled and revealed, could topple the regimes of Germany and the U.S.

Fatherland is a gripping detective thriller with a believable, complicated protagonist. I could not put this book down. At the same time, the author researched Nazi Germany and the Holocaust so well, every detail seemed utterly convincing and compelling (and in fact, he weaves in actual history and documents).

Fatherland is one of the best alt-history novels I've read. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars a 'what if' book, excellent detective story. 28 October 2012
By gary Ling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Fatherland is about a murder investigation by a German police officer, but in the scenario where Germany won the second world war and its in the 1960's. You have to factor in some things, such as if that had happened the world may not have been fully aware of the atrocities that the German Govt. were responsible for during WWII. With that in mind its a story of a German Detective and his investigation into a murder and its a fabulous story with easy to follow characters and plot. A WARNING !!!. If you see the name of the murder victim, don't look him up on Wikepedia as there is a good description of this book and the overall plot at the top of the page relating to the 'victim'. I couldn't stop myself and read it unfortunately. It didn't make too much difference but i would have rathered not known. Some of the detail of the German concentration camps is incredible. It was one thing to read lighter descriptions and generalisations about the camps, but Harris moves right into the actual events, citing actual documentation and that alone is worth reading to get a full appreciation. Overall an excellent book and well worth the read. (Just watch the Wikepedia references.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another page turner from Robert Harris. 20 March 2016
By S. E. Mcneil - Published on Amazon.com

Whether it's ancient Rome, or an alternative history of the Third Reich, Robert Harris does NOT disappoint! I thoroughly enjoyed Fatherland. Prior to reading the Cicero trilogy last month, I'd never read Robert Harris. He's an excellent writer and can hold the reader spellbound with his well developed historical mysteries. Currently, I'm in the midst of Pompeii, and look forward to reading all the Harris novels.

Outstanding novel based on alternative historical fiction. I read this in about 4 days, had to stop and put it down at night to go to sleep. Robert Harris is a masterful story teller and I've read 2 of his books so far, plan to read more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible read!! Masterfully written! 6 July 2016
By Bill L. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Historically quite accurate, which helps keep the story grounded and the mystery/conspiracy thrilling. The best part of this text is the misdirection in the plot. At face value, the story is thrilling and fast paced, with no filler. Without giving anything away, only at the end (through hindsight) did I realize the signs that lead to where things ended up. Masterfully well written, if you've heard of Robert Harris, start here!!
