A very well-written book. The author has done a fine job in producing an objective account of his father's early life and his mother's life. Whatever one's feelings about this couple, there can be no doubt that this is a fine work of myth-busting and analysis and that it is not a 'whitewash-job.'
Mosley's view and description of his father, although questionable at moments offers an interesting and compelling read. It was N.Mosleys view of the life and times of his father that were ultimately used as a basis for the dramatisation of Mosley's life. Very enjoyable, with interesting pictures.
The history of the Fascist movement in Britain is understandably one that we don't wish to remember. It was wonderful that decent ordinary people stood up to Mosley's black shirts and vanquished the curse of Mosley's Fascism from our country.
This book is a valuable contribution to understanding these events written by someone who knows it well, Mosley's son Nicholas. For me the book is even more important as Nicholas had/has no sympathy for his father's views.
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the political and social history of the 1930s to 1950s.
