Shadow of Montreux
by Pablo Portillo
Publisher: Sea Lion Press
"The first question that comes when writing a history of fascism is often simply where to begin?"
The totalitarian ideologies of the 20th century, fascism and communism, went to war in 1941. The victory of communism was not permanent, but the defeat of fascism was. In this thoughtful work, Pablo Portillo imagines a 20th century in which fascism, never quite destroyed by the catastrophes of its own making in the mid-20th century, lasts longer and maintains a veneer of respectability akin to that enjoyed by communism to this day.
A powerful work of alternate history examining the legacy of ideologies, 'Shadow of Montreux' charts the history of the 'Fascist International'.
