hope this is good.
Can't wait me like
is it a documentary?
The book is very good. I have high hopes for it.
Probably the UKIP manifesto.
controversial. Though the tory utopia could run it close
The original book is one of the best thrillers ever written.
Len Deighton is one of the best British writers of the last 50years
Is this just a UK version of The Man in the High Castle?
I'm currently watching "the nazis. A warning from history"
hope a few are watching this series as well
The book is a classic British spy/crime novel, with a posh University Educated Inspector (Archer), and a working class police Sgt hunting for a murderer through London
The twist is that Britain has lost the war and is under Nazi occupation, so Archer and his officers have to negotiate rivalries between the Brits, the Germans, the Wermacht and the Gestapo.
I don't know what the TV version will be the novel is a classic. Easily as good as Funeral in Berlin
I've just finished the man in the high castle, which had me hooked. I can't see this being as good, but I do think it's unfair to compare stuff.
Don't you think you'd get more response to your thread if you explained what this thread was about ?
good answer. I think the thread title was the clue.
Yeh, but there are a lot of people out there who can't be arsed to look it up. I'm in full on "can't be arsed" right now. It was a struggle just there to put a full stop @ (omg, it's getting worse) the end of that sentence.
Anyone interested in this might find it worth giving CJ Sansoms Dominion a read.
Another alternative history novel based around the Nazis winning the Second World War.
+1 from me. Cracking read. I think I may still have the book.
I feel a little uncomfortable knowing that the 'thriller' entertainment aspect will (of course) neglect any exploration of the fact that millions of British people would probably have been slaughtered by the Nazis if the apparent storyline of the programme had been true. It was, after all, going on elsewhere in Europe unbeknown to most of our parents/grandparents.
Maybe I'm just a tad over sensitive and scaredy knowing that Trump is holding rallies in the US barely a month after taking office denouncing all major news agencies who dare to criticise as liars and propagandists; which is exactly what the nazis would have done to anyone exposing their activities in SSGB. just before they shot them.
Yep - I know that Donald Trump isn't a Nazi. At least HE's convinced he's not.
And I should lighten up
But I worry.
i am certainly going to give it a watch.
Trump is pig ignorant, think skinned and lacking in judgement, knowledge and experience but I don't think you should worry to much about him.
