British Union of Fascists

During the existence of the pre-war British Union of Fascists and National Socialists (called British Union for short) many books and booklets were made available dealing with policies and ideas from within the movement. These were sold at meetings and via mail order. This collection is not complete - but it is one of the most extensive. These publications have been reset and made available as a prime source for students and other interested parties. Post war material can be found under the category heading Union Movement. The BUF was founded in 1932, before the advent to power of Adolf Hitler. It gained support because the main political parties could not deal with the problems of the day such as unemployment, the lack of housing and poor health provision.
