Phantom Victory: The Fourth Reich 1945-1960

New York: Putnam's, (1944). 227 p. 1st ed. Deustches Exilarchiv 3393. Sternfeld & Tiedemann p. 305. Cover worn along edge of front cover; else very good. [32913]

Political fantasy (in Bleiler, p. 123 & Sargent, "British & American Utopian Literature 1516-1975: An Annotated Bibliography, 1516-1975, p. 113), in which the defeated Germans wage an underground struggle and proceed to conquer the world. It is thus a sort of fictional equivalant of Curt Riess' "The Germans Go Underground." The entire text of the last chapter (and presumably the moral of the book) reads: "And for the rest, I say that Germany should be destroyed"
