Contents: 1952 --
almost a decade since humiliation at Dunkirk marked the end of Britain's war and the beginning of an uneasy peace. In Africa, the swastika flies from the Sahara to the Indian Ocean. Gleaming autobahns bisect the jungle and the brutal presence of the SS is visible everywhere. Britain and a victorious Nazi Germany have divided the continent. Now, however, the demonic plans of Walter Hochburg --
architect of Nazi Africa --
threaten Britain's ailing colonies. In England, ex-mercenary Burton Cole is offered one last contract. Cole jumps at the chance to settle an old score with Hochburg, ignoring his own misgivings and the protests of the woman he loves. If Cole fails, unimaginable horrors will be unleashed in Africa. No one --
black or white --
will be spared. But when his mission turns to disaster, Cole is forced to flee for his life. His flight takes him from the unholy killing ground of Congo to the slave camps of Rhodesia and on to war-torn Angola, finally reaching its thrilling climax in a conspiracy that leads to the dark heart of the Afrika Reich itself. Guy Saville has combined meticulous research with edge-of-the seat suspense to produce a superb novel of alternate history.
Responsibility: Guy Saville.
