A fascinating talk about the gripping story of a forgotten moment in Britain s postwar history.
Daniel Sonabend's book WE FIGHT FASCISTS: The 43 Group and Their Forgotten Battle for Post War Britain came out in 2019 and this session is timed to coincide with the publication of the paperback. The membership of the Group was almost entirely made up of British servicemen, the original 43 members quickly swelling to more than 300 and including a Battle of Britain ace, a VC winner – and Vidal Sassoon! The history of the 43 Group is not just a gripping story of a forgotten moment in Britain s postwar history; it is also a timely lesson in how to confront fascism, and how to win.
