    I have always enjoyed alternative histories and this is something a little unusual There are lots of novels where the Germans won the Second World War, but this book takes things in a slightly different direction Imagine the Germans won and were then overthrown by the Russians, leaving a wall which goes right through London and splits the country in two To the North, the Americans look down on a battered, war torn city, which is
