Here’s the link directly to the book:

Although the downloads are free, there’s an international fee ($2.35) for readers outside America to access the excerpts on Kindle. But you can also read my excerpt for free on at  If you read Hitler and Mars Bars on Createspace, would you go to Amazon’s Kindle excerpts page (see the direct link to my book in the paragraph above) and add your  comments about the book to that page?

  1. The book cover is attractive and appeals to speculative curiosity.

    I enjoyed reading this book. It is well crafted in description and narrative. Eric is a most believable character and the author attracts, through her characterisation of him, the readers sympathy and empathy. The Chapters are tidy and of convenient length. Other principle characters are well drwn out and the author has paced the whole work to form a compelling read throughout.

    I would recommend HITLER AND MARS BARS to other people ad trust that it will eventially find as far as possible readership. I have already gomne out and bought a copy
