This book is an important contribution to the study of West European fascism in the inter-war years. Focusing on the organizational and ideological relations of the German Nazis and French and Dutch fascists, Dietrich Orlow analyzes the evolving attitudes and conflicts among the Nazis toward the West European extreme Right, along with the conflicting views which French and Dutch fascists had about the Third Reich in the years from 1933 onward.

Editorial Reviews

"There have been a plethora of studies on western fascist movements, but no one has heretofore addressed the question of what the Nazi regime made of them and how they attempted to encourage them. Drawing on impressive archival research, Dietrich Orlow surveys numerous journals, writers, parties, and movements to untangle a complex but critical chapter in the history of European fascism."--William Irvine, Professor of History, York University, Toronto, Canada“In this elegantly written book, Orlow uncovers a rich texture of transnational interconnections among the French, German, and Dutch fascist/Nazi parties during their ideologically most dynamic years in the 1930s. His profound knowledge of the original-language sources lets him portray the lure of a fascist “national rebirth” across the borders of the three traditional sworn enemy-nations—without losing sight of the ultimately boundless violence of fascism.” --Dr. Diethelm Prowe, Laird Bell Professor of History Emeritus at Carleton College and Editor, German Studies Review
