C.J. SANSOM REWRITES HISTORY IN A THRILLING NOVEL THAT DARES TO IMAGINE BRITAIN UNDER THE THUMB OF NAZI GERMANY. 1952. Twelve years have passed since Churchill lost to the appeasers and Britain surrendered to Nazi Germany. The global economy strains against the weight of the long German war against Russia still raging in the east. The British people find themselves under increasingly authoritarian rule--the press, radio, and television tightly controlled, the British Jews facing ever greater constraints. But Churchill's Resistance soldiers on. As defiance grows, whispers circulate of a secret that could forever alter the balance of the global struggle. The keeper of that secret? Scientist Frank Muncaster, who languishes in a Birmingham mental hospital. Civil Servant David Fitzgerald, a spy for the Resistance and University friend of Frank's, is given the mission to rescue Frank and get him out of the country. Hard on his heels is Gestapo agent Gunther Hoth, a brilliant, implacable hunter of men, who soon has Frank and David's innocent wife, Sarah, directly in his sights. C.J. Sansom's literary thriller Winter in Madrid earned Sansom comparisons to Graham Greene, Sebastian Faulks, and Ernest Hemingway. Now, in his first alternative history epic, Sansom doesn't just recreate the past--he reinvents it. In a spellbinding tale of suspense, oppression and poignant love, DOMINION dares to explore how, in moments of crisis, history can turn on the decisions of a few brave men and women--the secrets they choose to keep and the bonds they share.

Most of the way through, I was fascinated with this thriller/alternate history. Britain is closely allied with the Nazi regime. Civil servant David joins the Resistance & winds up helping to spirit an old schoolfriend with dangerous knowledge away from those seeking his secrets as the Gestapo and British Special Branch chase them. But the end lost my interest when too much was made of every woman loving David for no discernible reason...

I normally enjoy #alternativehistory books ... not sure if it‘s the author‘s writing style or if it‘s just me.

This was my first alternative history novel and it was really good. It's 1940 and the British have surrendered to Germany, fast forward eleven years, what does the world look like under German rule? Is the resistance still going or are people accepting new the regime? Such a interesting topic, would make an excellent book club book. It's a brick of a book at six hundred pages but it was worth reading for sure.

Picnic supper tonight, this book is what I think is speculative fiction #itshistory turned on it's head. What if the Allies lost and the Axis won. It makes you #think about what a fascist world would be like. Too scary- I haven't been able to finish this book #augustgirrrls #anditsaugust

Like all of C J Sansom's book it is evocative, clever and thought provoking. Although it's a book built on a 'what if' it felt totally real. The sense of oppression and fear are palpable, the characters flawed and engaging. Can't recommend this book enough.
