This chapter examines the history of British fascist and extreme right movements up until the end of the Second World War. It considers groups such as the British Brothers’ League as precursors to interwar British fascism, and highlights how leaders such as Rotha Lintorn Orman, Oswald Mosley and Arnold Leese developed openly fascist groups in the interwar years. It explores how these organisations offered competing versions of the ideology, were rooted in radicalised British identities steeped in cultures of empire, as well as taking inspiration from continental fascisms. Finally, it examines other important figures at this time, such as A. K. Chesterton and William Joyce.
