First English edition July 2016Translated by Christopher Schembri
November 2016: could Adolf Hitler’s son become the new President of the United States of America?
From the fall of Berlin in 1945 to this day, a Nazi plot could change our future.
Why have seventy-year-old documents come to light from the archives of the Russian secret services? From the NKVD to the KGB to the current SVR, a common thread unites the investigations on Hitler’s biological son.
"Operation Phoenix is the Nazi attempt to seize power in the world’s most powerful nation and take revenge on history."
"The Russian’s nightmare? Adolf Hitler’s son with a briefcase containing nuclear launch codes."
From the tragic figure of Eva Braun to the evil that is Kaltenbrunner, from the adventurous Skorzeny to Lansky the mafioso, from the ambiguous Hanna Reitsch to the brilliant Markus Wolf: a crowd of extraordinary historical figures.

"Look Who's Back" by Timur Vermes
Thousands of American writers, including Stephen King, have published an appeal against the Republican candidate for the USA presidency in the 2016 elections.
Instead, Marco Bonafede uses narrative as a tool for political debate.
The novel "Operation Phoenix: the largest Nazi plot" is a spy story about racism.
The literary mechanism is used for the discovery of fatherhood, using real and fictional characters, to analyze the historical roots of a possible resurgence of Nazism. Operation Griffin, Operation Paperclip and the Cold War are the historical basis for explaining current political events. It all takes place in Berlin, Havana and New York.
"Operation Phoenix" could be defined as an instant novel, a short novel easy and quick to read, that focuses on current issues.
The novel relates to the dystopian literary genre. We quote:
Sinclair Lewis: "It can’t happen here" (1935) - Philiph Dick: "The man in the high castle" (1963) - Timothy B. Benford "Hitler's Daughter ...
