The capital of Bavaria proves to be the place where Karl is initiated into what has long been regarded as true manliness. Not only does he succeed in gaining the respect of his tough comrades by guarding the public speeches of Adolf Hitler but he experiences the joys of sexuality when he falls in love with a blonde, busty nurse named Sabine Koch. Instrumental as he is to Hitler`s struggle for power, Karl has neither an inkling of his political plans nor an interest in his racial ideology. Instead, he simply contents himself with beating up political opponents and running personal errands for leading party members.
Years later Karl is given the assignment of showing Hitler`s niece the sites of the city. Angela Geli" Raubal turns out to be a 16-year-old girl from Vienna whose vivacity attracts his attention immediately. Struck by her elusive seductiveness, he cannot but feel that she is weighed down by some mysterious burden. This does not prevent him from having a passionate love affair with her as soon as she moves to Munich and settles into an apartment next to her uncle`s in Thierschstrasse 41.Read more ›

I think referring to this novel as an alternate history is perhaps misleading. The event which makes it so occurs at the very end of the novel, and we're never really given any indication of how the event changes history as we know it. And that too, is a disappointment.
