First Sentence
Images of the British Union of Fascists (BUF) tend to evoke popular memories of a marginal movement, making a strong appeal to ex-servicemen, and drawing support from disgruntled and anti-Semitic elements in London's East End, with columns of male Blackshirts marching in step to vainglorious calls for a 'Greater Britain.' Read the first page

This book covers the topic of women in fascism better than most. One thing that I really wished the book had done was told me what a lot of these women ended up doing with the rest of their lives. Many of their stories end with them either leaving the movement or being discharged from prison (after being confined as fifth columnists during the war). I think a little more research in that direction would have yielded interesting results.

Beyond that, the book is not terribly well written.

I study extremist movements (both right and left) during the 1930s. I was hoping this book would shed some light on this interesting aspect of British fascism. It really didn't. I think buyers would be better off borrowing this one from the local library.

Read Stephen Dorril's Black Shirt. I think that book offers a much more insight on women black shirts than this book.
