In the real world, Reinhard Heydrich-the number-two man in the SS and an architect of the holocaust-was assassinated in Czechoslovakia in May 1942. Eulogized by Hitler himself as "The Man with the Iron Heart," Heydrich-also known as "The Butcher" and "The Hangman"-was one of the most ruthless and calculating of the Nazi elite. In The Man with the Iron Heart, Heydrich survives that fated assassination attempt only to hatch an insurgency as insidious as anything conceived by Osama bin Laden, designed to keep the German battlefront alive long after the supposed end to hostilities. The Allies thought the war was over, but their problems are just beginning. The Man with the Iron Heart is the gripping story of the hunt for Rienhard Heydrisch and of the effort to suppress urban guerrilla warfare sixty years before we really run into it in Iraq. Powerful and compelling, Turtledove has never been better. Download and start listening now!

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “The parallels to the current situation in Iraq are obvious but cleverly drawn, leaving readers on both sides of the war debate with much to think about.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 1/21/2011

    " A wonderful "what if" story about the Nazi werewolves following the end or World War II in Europe. It's hard for me to put the book down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wsprag | 9/2/2010

    " Good book. It really began to get dull toward the end. It just seemed to stop rather than come to a conclusion. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rob | 12/13/2009

    " As usual with Turtledove, wonderful characterization. However, the premise doesn't work. Germany in 1946 is not like Iraq. "

    " I didn't particularly enjoy this book. I don't think it was one of Turtledove's better attempts. I was glad to read it, but it isn't on my favorite list of books. It raises some interesting "what-ifs" however, and has some relevant points to what is going on in Iraq and Afghanistan today. "

    " Current problems we are having in Iraq applied to Post WWII Germany. Interesting and entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 4/27/2009

    " Interesting look at what an Iraq type situation may have played out in Germany at the end of WWII. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 1/8/2009

    " As usual, a Turtledove book with some great ideas and workmanlike writing. Characters exist to move the story forward, not as actual people.

    And still, the alternative history fascinates me enough that I manage to slog through it. "
