A satirical look at Hitler's return to the 21st Century. He has been in a coma since 1945 and wakes to see the EU in place and all the other different happenings, which slightly confuses him. A satirical dig at the right wing in Germany and the political world.

Been reviewed and with a score of 4 Mr Mushroomheads looks like a great read. Labelled "A Merciless Satire", if this is your thing then this is worth a punt.

The competition can be entered in the usual fashion: Entry Form

Correct completion and you will be in with a shout at winning a copy.Competition will run until Sunday 13 May sometime around midday (ish).

You need to read your history books SPB, he was Adolf's cousin, twice removed (once by the SS, then again by the Gestapo) ;)

I recently read a wonderful article in The Guardian about the the book and the controversy it caused in Germany and have wanted to get it ever since. If I don't win a copy I'll probably buy it soon enough (not that I'm trying to talk my way out of the competition, AG, you understand...) :wink:

Don't flatter yourself, AG. I'm hard up, not fed up!

Been wondering when someone would notice your deliberate mistake A.G., but it looks like every one is too well mannered to point it out
