Book Discussion | Hitler’s Girl: The British Aristocracy and the Third Reich on the Eve of WWII (online)


Lauren Young's new book is a groundbreaking history that reveals how authoritarianism nearly took hold in Great Britain in the 1930s. 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. They formed a murky so-called Fifth Column to Nazi Germany, which depended on the complacency and complicity of the English to topple its democratic tradition - and they very nearly succeeded. Young exposes secret organizations, shadow foreign policy projects, and a shocking affair.
