Overview

Guy Saville's "The Madagaskar Plan" imagines a disturbing alternate history in which Nazi victory in World War II brings their "Final Solution" ever closer

The year is 1953. There is peace in Europe, but a victorious Germany consolidates power in Africa. The lynchpin to its final solution is Madagaskar. Hitler has ordered the resettlement of European Jews to the remote island.

British forces conspire to incite colony-wide revolt, resting their hopes on the expertise of Reuben Salois, an escaped leader of Jewish resistance.

Ex-mercenary Burton Cole scours the island for his wife and child. But 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 Holocaust.

Saville doesn’t sacrifice characterization for action or plot in his imaginative sequel to 2013’s The Afrika Reich, a thriller in which the Nazis win WWII. In May 1940, British forces fail to escape Dunkirk. Churchill resigns, and the new prime minister makes peace with Germany, which defeats the Soviet Union in 1943. With Europe securely under its sway, Germany establishes an empire in Africa. Instead of exterminating the Jews, Hitler has the majority shipped to Madagascar. In 1952, former British soldier Burton Cole searches for his love, Madeleine Cranley, whose husband has just learned that she’s carrying another man’s child. The way Saville interweaves this story line with that of Germans intent on conquering those parts of Africa not yet in their control is masterly. Meanwhile, the Jews imprisoned on Madagascar desperately try to draw a neutral America to their cause. Saville’s attention to detail is manifest throughout, as in a passing reference to the impact on the British economy of German territorial conquests. Agent: Farley Chase, Chase Literary Agency. (Aug.)
