Alistair Moffat: A Tale of Zero Hour

In Alistair Moffat’s ingenious thriller The Night Before Morning, the summer of 1945 finds Hitler victorious and Britain under German control. The author of more than 20 books of non-fiction, Moffat is an incisive historian and hugely popular public figure. As a debut novelist, he’s brought all his historical knowledge of Scotland to bear on an imaginary story which rings terrifyingly true. He discusses the novel with Jenny Brown today.
