Blood and Power

A major history of the rise and fall of Italian fascism: a dark tale of violence, ideals and a country at war.

In the aftermath of the First World War, the seeds of fascism were sown in Italy. While the country reeled in shock, a new movement emerged from the chaos: one which preached hatred for politicians and love for the fatherland, one which promised to build a 'New Roman Empire', and make Italy a great power again.

Wearing black shirts and wielding guns, knives and truncheons, the proponents of fascism embraced a climate of violence and rampant masculinity. Led by Mussolini, they would systematically destroy the organisations of the left, murdering and torturing anyone who got in their way.

In Blood and Power, acclaimed historian John Foot draws on decades of research to chart the turbulent years between 1915 and 1945. Using the accounts of real people - fascists, anti-fascists, communists, anarchists, victims, perpetrators and bystanders - he tells the story of fascism and its legacy which still, disturbingly, reverberates to this day.
