Waterstones Says

The king of the wry, realistic espionage thriller turns his attention to an alternate history of the Second World War in this enthralling account of what British life could have been like under Nazi rule. At its heart a ripping good spy yarn, SS-GB also scores with its credible, deftly rendered atmosphere and typically acute characterisation.

In February 1941 British Command surrendered to the Nazis. Churchill has been executed, the King is in the Tower and the SS are in Whitehall...

For nine months Britain has been occupied - a blitzed, depressed and dingy country. However, it's `business as usual' at Scotland Yard run by the SS when Detective Inspector Archer is assigned to a routine murder case. Life must go on.

But when SS Standartenfuhrer Huth arrives from Berlin with orders from the great Himmler himself to supervise the investigation, the resourceful Archer finds himself caught up in a high level, all action, espionage battle.

This is a spy story quite different from any other. Only Deighton, with his flair for historical research and his narrative genius, could have written it.

“Not what I thought”

I was looking forward to reading this book, but was let down by the way it is written. The fact it was originally written in 1978 really shows in my opinion. I think it has been re-branded to coincide with the TV... More

“SSGB. A FAILURE,,”

I wasn't at all impressed. The story was gloomy and totally lacked credibility.

“'Fatherland' it ain't!”

I wrote this earlier in the year but just noticed it wasn’t posted. Am trying again!

I'm a big fan of alternate history especially ones where the Nazis win the WW2 - but somehow SS-GB managed to slip beneath my... More
