Format: Paperback
Troy Southgate's first novel explores what might have happened if Hitler had not died in his Berlin bunker in 1945, but had instead attempted an escape. As the communist forces pummel Berlin into submission we join poor Adolf on his desperate and difficult adventure. At the outset he acquires a new identity which allows him to make good his escape from Berlin, but which also allows the reader to approach this most recognisable of characters afresh. With a new appearance, and robbed of his former power, Hitler becomes just another German attempting to survive his country's downfall. In the days following his escape from Berlin, the Fuhrer's quasi-mythological status becomes a mere memory, and we see the very human side of this alternately Deified and demonised individual.

Fantasies about what might have happened had Hitler not died in Berlin can attract some strange bedfellows. In the universe of Marvel comics, clones of Hitler still attempt to cause chaos after the original Adolf was killed by the Human Torch, and, in the universe of Esoteric Hitlerism, Adolf is still tinkering with UFOs inside the hollow Earth. And, whilst Troy's take on this scenario is quite distinct from either Captain America or Miguel Serrano, it is similar in approach to the great comic book writer Alan Moore. Moore is famous for developing the characterisation of superheroes with a degree of seriousness and literary depth that is more usually associated with novels than with comics. Here, Troy applies a similar approach to the greatest supervillain of all, and, by building upon the sensational premise with naturalistic prose and sober character development, creates a complex, driven and wilful man.

This novel arrives at an interesting time.

Extremely disappointing book!! I expected something of the quality of Alex kurtagic considering (I believe) he owns Iron Sky publishing through wermod & wermod and personally endorsed this book. I am surprised Troy Southgate wrote this as a BOOK instead of posting it as a bad rant on stormfront. Southgates purpose of writing this book is to offer anti-hitler pro-strasserist views that take up a few painfully uninspiring pages. This book was a disaster and reading it was a waste of my life. I am just still shocked at how much it utterly sucked. I was tempted to send it back and tell them to never send me any more garbage again. Seriously I do not own a worse book and I own thousands. Literally the worst SF or Fantasy book I have ever read/owned doesn't compare to how bad this book is. Save your money buy ANYTHING else and it will be better spent. I feel sorry for Alex (or however the poor bastard was who decided ot would be a good idea to publish this) for his temporary lapse in logic for ever agreeing to publish this rubish. Kurtagic is much better than that.
