Summary
"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 1952. There is peace in Europe, but a victorious Germany continues to consolidate power in Afrika. The lynchpin to their final solution is Madagaskar. In order to permanently contain the undesirable race, Hitler has approved the resettlement of European Jews to the remote island. Odilo Globocnik, SS Governor of Madagaskar, fiercely administrates the outpost, while extracting minerals and vanilla for the enrichment of the expanding Reich. In Mozambique, British forces plan to free Madagaskar, setting their sights on the critical port city of Diego. Relying on the expertise of Jacques Salois, an escaped leader of Jewish resistance, they plot to incite a colony-wide revolt.Into this roiling landscape arrives ex-mercenary Burton Cole, who scours shanty towns and work camps for his beloved Madeleine and their child. But as chaos descends and Walter Hochburg, SS Governor of Kongo, comes ever closer to exacting revenge, Cole must decide whether he is master, or at the mercy, of history. The Madagaskar Plan is alternate history of the highest order. Guy Saville has written a thriller of terrifying scope and plausibility"--

Summary
1953. Britain and her Empire are diminished. Nazi Germany controls Europe and a vast African territory. There has been no Holocaust. Instead, the Jews have been exiled to Madagaskar, a tropical ghetto ruled by the SS. Returning home after a disastrous mission to Africa, ex-mercenary Burton Cole finds his lover has disappeared. Desperate to discover her, he is drawn into a conspiracy that will lead him back to the Dark Continent. Meanwhile Walter Hochburg, Nazi Governor of Kongo, has turned his attention to Madagaskar. Among the prisoners are scientists who could develop him a weapon of unimaginable power. But Hochburg is not the only one interested in Madagaskar. The British have plans to destroy its naval base to bring America into a war against the Reich. They have found the ideal man for the task: Reuben Salois, the only Jew to have escaped the ghetto. The only one brave, or foolhardy, enough to return. These three men will converge on Madagaskar. The fate of the world is in their hands...Drawing on the Nazis' original plans for the Jews, the author has meticulously imagined a world-that-nearly-was to tell an epic tale of love, revenge and survival.
