The first and most obvious result was the creation of a British government allied to Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japan, forming a huge global power bloc with common aims and ambitions and the military strength to achieve them. The world we know today does not exist and the truth about the moral vacuum we inherited in its place is hidden from the mass of ordinary people.
Totalitarian states write their own histories, travesties of the facts designed to hide their own culpability for crimes used to justify the destruction of their enemies. This is one such history. It throws real people and events and into a blender with fictional ones, although a surprising amount of the truth survives. Decide for yourself which is which but above all be aware that the world it describes is a place where the most offensive beliefs have become accepted norms, where intolerance is taught in the schools, where the evils of the past are cloaked in euphemism and where the memory of good people is reviled.
Reviews by authors and editors:
'A hugely impressive achievement … extremely convincing and very intricately stage-managed.'
'Written with consummate skill. Completely original.'
