In Berlin, shortly after Hitler’s death in 1952, Goebbels decreed that the Hitler salute would remain the official greeting forever. This verbatim statement from C. J. Sansom’s novel, “Dominion” (2012), is a startling reminder of what might have been. In Britain, an unoccupied but subservient ally of Nazi Germany, Sansom describes a society in which pre-World War II Britain "was gone, had instead turned into a place where an authoritarian government in league with fascist thugs thrived on nationalist dreams of empire, on scapegoats and 'enemies’”. “Dominion” has something of the feel of “1984”: propaganda, greyness, the use of Senate House (Orwell's Ministry of Truth) as the German Embassy (it had been a building coveted by Hitler), and spies and informers embedded in the society. Sansom is also persuasive, though hardly original, in explaining the rise of Nazism in Germany in the late 1920s and early 1930s, and sharp on the incipient or pre-fascist tendencies in British society: Mos
