Product description


A British Fascist in the Second World War casts new light on a relevant point in history that is generally neglected: the English supporters of Italian Fascism, who, after 1940, became traitors and quislings. This important document, carefully and scholarly edited, shows how World War Two may be considered as a World Civil War, fought by dedicated idealists. -- Luca Gallesi * Storia in Rete (Bloomsbury translation) *

Of all the British Italophiles, whether also members of Sir Oswald Mosley's BUF, he was the only example who wished to go the whole hog and renounce his Britishness in wartime.

Claudia Baldoli's introduction to and translation of Barnes' War Diary 1943-45 presents him in many ways more than the Irish William Joyce, hanged for high treason: he was more than a broadcaster and writer for EIAR (forerunner of RAI) from 1940; for in addition to being a close friend of Ezra Pound, his work brought him into regular contact with all the leading notables of Fascist Italy: Gen.
