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.
