Description
"Guy Saville's The Madagaskar Plan imagines a disturbing alternate history in which Nazi victory in World War II brings their "Final Solution" ever closer. The year is 1952. There is peace in Europe, but a victorious Germany continues to consolidate power in Afrika. The lynchpin to their final solution is Madagaskar. In order to permanently contain the undesirable race, Hitler has approved the resettlement of European Jews to the remote island. Odilo Globocnik, SS Governor of Madagaskar, fiercely administrates the outpost, while extracting minerals and vanilla for the enrichment of the expanding Reich. In Mozambique, British forces plan to free Madagaskar, setting their sights on the critical port city of Diego. Relying on the expertise of Jacques Salois, an escaped leader of Jewish resistance, they plot to incite a colony-wide revolt.Into this roiling landscape arrives ex-mercenary Burton Cole, who scours shanty towns and work camps for his beloved Madeleine and their child. But as chaos descends and Walter Hochburg, SS Governor of Kongo, comes ever closer to exacting revenge, Cole must decide whether he is master, or at the mercy, of history. The Madagaskar Plan is alternate history of the highest order. Guy Saville has written a thriller of terrifying scope and plausibility"--
