"Francois, the adolescent narrator, meets Marthe in Paris at the start of the First World War. The two fall in love while Marthe's husband is away at the front. The themes of family, freedom and passion against a background of war and honour explored in The Devil in the Flesh created a scandal at the time of publication in 1923, the year of the author's death."--P [2] of cover
Patriotism perverted : Captain Ramsay, the Right Club, and British anti-semitism, 1939-40 by Richard Griffiths( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a study of British anti-Semitism in the last six months of peace, and the first year of the Second World War. It shows how, against the backdrop of an endemic British 'social anti-Semitism', a virulent form of this tendency was able to emerge in the late Thirties, above all in a variety of extremist movements. These movements gained their strength from the popular obsession, in 1939, with Jewish responsibility for the approaching war (seen as 'The War of the Jews' Revenge'), and with the myth of the Judaeo-Bolshevik Plot. Inevitably, these views were closely related, in many cases, with pro-Nazism. At the end of his last book, Fellow Travellers of the Right, which dealt with pro-Nazism in the mid-Thirties, the author hazarded the view that, after Hitler's march into Prague in March 1939, this tendency almost died out. The present book is the proof that that generalisation was mistaken."--BOOK JACKET

What did you do during the war? : the last throes of the British pro-Nazi Right, 1940-45 by Richard Griffiths( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a sequel to Richard Griffiths's two highly successful previous books on the British pro-Nazi Right: Fellow-Travellers of the Right : British Enthusiasts for Nazi Germany, 1933-9; and Patriotism Perverted : Captain Ramsay, the Right Club and British Anti-Semitism, 1939-40. It follows the fortunes of his protagonists after the arrests of May-June 1940, and charts their very varied reactions to the failure of their cause, while also looking at the possible reasons for the government's failure to detain prominent pro-Nazis from the higher strata of society. Some of the pro-Nazis continued with their original views, and even undertook politically subversive activity, here and in Germany. Others, finding that their pre-war balance between patriotism and pro-Nazism had now tipped firmly on the side of patriotism, fully supported the war effort, while still maintaining their old views privately. Other people found that events had sincerely made them change their views. And then there were those who, frightened by the prospect of detention or disgrace, tried to hide or even to deny their former views by a variety of subterfuges, including attacking former colleagues. This wide variety of reactions sheds new light on the equally wide range of reasons for their original admiration for Nazism, and also gives us some more general insight into what could be termed 'the psychology of failure'"--Provided by publisher
