Description
"Hitler's Girl is a groundbreaking history that reveals how, in the 1930s, authoritarianism nearly took hold in Great Britain as it did in Italy and Germany. Drawing on recently declassified intelligence files, Lauren Young details the pervasiveness of Nazi sympathies among the British aristocracy, as significant factions of the upper class methodically pursued an actively pro-German agenda. She reveals how these aristocrats formed a murky Fifth Column to Nazi Germany, which depended on the complacence and complicity of the English to topple its proud and long-standing democratic tradition--and very nearly succeeded." -- Amazon.com.
Description
This alternative history of 1930s Britain examines how fascist sympathizers in the aristocracy nearly helped authoritarianism take hold in Great Britain as it did in Italy and Germany, through secret organizations like the Right Club.
