Patrick AndersonThere is, of course, a vast literature on Nazi Germany, in both fiction and nonfiction, and some readers already will have covered the ground explored here. But Kerr, perhaps best known for his "Berlin Noir" trilogy, is a close student of wartime Germany, and for other readers Hitler's Peace will offer an action-packed, well-researched introduction to the Nazi cosmos, as well as to the Big Three leaders and the Tehran conference. The novel is always readable but inevitably uneven, because the loathsome reality of the Nazis is a good deal more fascinating than the gee-whiz adventures Kerr builds around Willard Mayer and the Roosevelt circle. What can you do? As the poet John Milton demonstrated several centuries ago in Paradise Lost, devils are inherently more interesting than angels.
