Great Film and the book is about to be re-issued
5 April 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

yes this was a fine example of 'what if'. It certainly makes you think about how it might have been had Hitler succeeded.

The book 'How It Happened Here' is due to be re-issued with a revised content and updates.

The new book 'How It Happened Here' should be out in August but check availability on amazon or at the publishers website ukapress.com

The DVD for this film is also available now with a great review on dvdtalk.com http://www.dvdtalk.com/dvdsavant/s100here.html

In all, it's a film that hasn't had enough exposure. The concept is frightening and the idea should be bought back into the mind of a new generation. It is horrifying to think how close England came to being ruled by an unspeakable dictator.
