The Madagaskar Plan Free read » 8 review The Madagaskar Plan T as chaos descends and the Nazis brutally suppress the nascent insurrection Cole must decide whether he is master of or at the mercy of history The Madagaskar Plan is alternate history of the highest order a thriller of terrifying scope based on the Nazis' actual plans prior to the Holocau. Very worthy addition to the Afrika Trilogy that s so far stuck on 2 I enjoyed the first a good deal but probably eual parts for the uniue idea as much as the story itself whereas this addition had a crisper story This chapter took so long to come out I forgot to keep looking for it so I went a long time in between the first and reading this As such the first wasnt too vivid in my mind but it didn t much matter I really liked what Saville did in creating a world through his imagined Jewish penal colony administered by the SS The dynamics of that premise and how the pressures of that brutal undertaking play out provide a really rich backdrop Saville constructs a multilayered ghettorebellion culture that s really well done It s also extremely dark and often gut wrenching While the first book had its fair share of brutality it thankfully had no direct parallel in actual history thus making the cruelty less poignant Because of the actual atrocities committed by the Nazis against Jews the book s fictionalized versions carried extra weight and darknessKudos to Saville for not being scared to let the body count accumulate and not twisting the narrative to allow all primary characters to make it to the third bookI knocked it down a bit because it dragged at times for reasons I cant uite put my finger on I think it s because the imagined geopolitical machinations were of greater interest than the individual human dramas Or maybe it was that there were too many chefs in the stew so that each character arc became a bit diluted I also found Hochburg again his main villain a bit too cartoonish It s a stretch how maniacally driven he is by revenge over decades Even so because so many other characters are driven by the same lust for vengeance Too many characters go to herculean lengths in a way that stretches credibility It s a rare person that can fan the flames of revenge over long periods of time and through intricate planning without consuming themself in the flames yet it is a common thread hereAllowing for those criticisms I think the creativity and depth of the world far outweigh some convenient character motivations It reads as extremely well researched thought out and the author clearly lost himself in the world he imagined into being Bring on volume 3

The Madagaskar Plan Free read » 8 review The Madagaskar Plan Guy Saville's The Madagaskar Plan imagines a disturbing alternate history in which Nazi victory in World War II brings their Final Solution ever closerThe year is 1953 There is peace in Europe but a victorious Germany consolidates power in Africa The lynchpin to its final solution is Madaga. A few days ago Guy Saville pointed out on Facebook that the paperback of The Madagaskar Plan was coming out today I ve had both this and The Afrika Reich sitting in my to be read pile for some time I ummed and ahhed over whether it would be wise to start book 2 before I ve read book 1 but heck with it I didInterestingly there is enough background and there are enough illuminating flashbacks in this book that it does not seem to rely entirely upon the first to be readable Not that I d heartily recommend starting with book 2 because now that I ve done it I have to go back and read book 1 to see what I missedFirstly what is The Afrika Reich trilogy and this book in particular Well it s almost Historical Fiction It s a what if scenario The premise behind the series is that the Dunkirk evacuations failed Churchill resigned over the failure and conseuently the succeeding British government came to peaceful terms with the Nazis By the early 50s when the book is set Britain still has its Imperial holdings Germany has overrun Russia and controls roughly half of all African territory and the United States is out of it as a neutral nation Africa is divided between Britain and Germany with a few smaller states belonging to Italy Portugal etc and a neutral South AfricaMadagaskar is the greatest imaginable prison camp for deported Jews Europe having been largely emptied of them there are 5 million living on the island under SS rule being gradually worked to deathBurton Cole a survivor or earlier clashes in Africa and clearly the hero of the first book returns to Britain to find his lover a former Austrian Jew has been found out by her cuckold husband and deported to Madagaskar He thence rushes off to find her Meanwhile his former nemesis Hochberg the governor of German Kongo has his own reasons building to head to the island in the hope of achieving German domination of the continent And his deputy now in exile And a Jewish partisan And othersIncredibly skillfully Saville weaves a web that brings so many seemingly disconnected elements many with totally different motives to the island and into the crucible of destruction For Madagaskar is an island on the very brink of revolt and the world is watching tensely for any shake might bring America into the matter There is no forced or over woven aspect to the drawing together of the strands of plotA word needs to be said on the characters Despite this being Britain and Nazi Germany do not expect to read with a black and white moral attitude You will find every shade of grey on both sides Some of the Germans are almost sympathetic Some of the British are downright loathsome And they are all believable which is perhaps the most critical thingDespite the alternate reality setting of the novel it is so realistic and clearly feasible that it doesn t jar the reader at all In fact it is all too easy to accept this version of history as the truth It so nearly could have happenedThe feel of the plot is something of a mix It is part war story part espionage part drama part prison movie At times it felt a little like The Wild Geese at others Where Eagles Dare and others again Papillon It is all of those things but not them alone It is a masterful example of the craft of fiction and kept me riveted from beginning to endIt s out in paperback today Go get these books folks and make sure you have them read before
