    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).

     
  2. Done......

  5. 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 do read my history books, sadly, Wrecks. If I didn't I'd end up a UKIP supporter... :oops: :twisted:

    Does the book clear up the myth about Adolf's bollock(s)?
     
  8. Bugger! Can I assume that I didn't read the question properly?

  9. Thinking on what you've said SPB, this book could be a satirical comment on Nigel Farage ;)

    Any similarity between Albert Hitler and Nigel Garage's policies are entirely coincidental... :shock:

    Written by a German so I guess the satire is more aimed at Angela M, but if the cap fits......................

    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:

    This hilarious satire on contemporary politics is still up for grabs. Comp runs until Sunday next.
     
  17. 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
     
  18. When you've retired mikh, every day is a Sunday, or so I've been told ;)
