Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Oswald Mosley was Britain's failed Fuhrer. His political career began brilliantly--he was the youngest MP of his day--but his attraction to fascism led him to found the notorious "Blackshirts"--the British Union of Fascists--secretly funded by Mussolini, but increasingly influenced by the Nazis. Released fromjail after the war, Mosley tried to re-found his movement from exile, attacking Britain's new immigrants and advocating a united white Europe. Race, nation, and political violence continue to be urgent issues: this insightful analysis of Mosley's appeal, and his failure, is vital reading.

Synopsis:

This is one title in a series of short, illustrated biographies. They tell the stories of those who have shaped our present and our past, from Beethoven to Dietrich, from Einstein to Churchill and are suitable for students and the general reader.

Synopsis:

Oswald Mosley was Britain's failed Fuhrer. This is the first independent biography of Mosley since Robert Skidelsky's in 1975 and makes full use of recent research into British fascism.
