Tomorrow the World by MK Joseph
290PP | 205mm x 135mm
A dying Hitler dictates his memoirs to a personal aide whilst his top commanders plot against each other to see who will become the next Fuhrer. Meanwhile a small resistance group from England tries to smuggle a package across Europe that will help to smash the fascist rule, but are they in reality the pawns of one of the German Generals?
MK Joseph’s previous novels were translated into several languages including Dutch, French and Japanese, now a new novel has been discovered that imagines Britain and Europe as ruled by the Nazis after they won WWII. It draws on MK Joseph’s firsthand experience fighting against the Nazis and is a riveting story of fascist conformity, political intrigue, resistance, and betrayal.
