A Completely Original and Captivating Dystopian Alternate History#1 Best Seller in Absurdist Fiction An ambitious feat of engineering and a continent in crisis. The Atlantropa Articles is an epic saga by YouTuber Cody Franklin (Alternate History Hub), with contributions from YouTuber Joseph Pisenti (Real Life Lore). In an alternate history timeline, World War II never takes place. Instead, a plan is put into effect by Hitler and the Nazi party to drain the Mediterranean Sea. They promise fertile land, millions of jobs and endless energy, new land to be settled, and living space for a crowded continent. To realize this new world, all of Europe came together and signed a treaty called 'The Atlantropa Articles'. Nazism survives in a new Europe. By promising to bring endless energy through hydro-electricity and employing millions to build the dams, fascism only cements itself as a mainstream ideology. Hitler is seen as a modern Napoleon, one of the greats for his time. Nazism never disappears. The Reich remains eternal. Two millennia later, the Reich runs the world. Aryans have become a race of their own, outnumbering their neighbors and ruling with a messianic passion towards Hitler. Europe has been united under the banner of the swastika. The sea is gone and the promise failed. But the plan of a fertile lush land was never realized. The project took decades longer than anticipated. By the time it is completed, what they find is a salty barren world. Now the Mediterranean Sea is a desert basin known only as the Kiln. Southern Europe has been abandoned. This is where Ansel's story begins-a story of discovery, lies, and false prophets. The Atlantropa Articles is an astounding science fiction, alternate history tale that will thrill and transport you with its detailed world and startling intimacy. If you're a fan of books by Harry Turtledove, Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle, or Stephen King's 11/22/63, you'll love The Atlantropa Articles.

  1. Hyfsad alternativhistoria.
    Daniel Sandström, 22 mars 2019

    Denna bok var en intressant och lite obehaglig syn på framtiden om Atlantropa dammarna hade byggts. Den handlar om den cyniska och utslitne Hansel och hans oerfarna yngre bror Ulric som färdas igenom den öken som en gång var Medelhavet. Boken var stundtals lite långsam, men aldrig tråkig, rolig och lite sorglig. Den gräver inte ner sig i tekniska förklaringar om de maskiner som används i denna framtid. Handlingen förblir fokuserad på huvudpersonerna och den värld som har format dem.

They can't understand what he is saying as he's begging for mercy. Ansel gives the order to toss him overboard, give the Raider a sanding. Sanding is when a man is thrown overboard as he's tied to the ship with a rope. The fall is small enough it doesn't kill the victim but would break many bones.
