What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 34 in a series – “…aggressive disciples there formed strong-arm squads, squadre d’azione…”

October 31st, 2019

 

“Mussolini was saved from oblivion after the nearly terminal disaster of the elections of November 1919 by a new tactic invented by some of his followers in rural northern Italy: squadrismo. Some of his more aggressive disciples there formed strong-arm squads, squadre d’azione, and applied the tactics they had learned as soldiers to attacking the internal enemies (in their view) of the Italian nation.”

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
