Example text

Were certain groups inside the National Party favorably disposed to the Far Right? Scholars have not asked these questions. Nor have they asked why there was such ambivalence toward Germany inside the National Party, nor why it took so long for the Nationalist establishment to recognize the threat of Nazism to its own cause. This study investigates these issues by examining the possibility that mainstream Afrikaner nationalists had come under the spell of the fascists, but by far more veiled and subtle means than was true of their more extreme compatriots.

With the outbreak of the Second World War and the remarkable German military successes in Europe in the first three years of that struggle, fascism began to affect Afrikaner politics on a much wider front and with much more visible success, peaking in 1940 to 1941, when for a time it seemed that the National Party might work toward a full-fledged alliance with South African Radical Right groups like the Ossewabrandwag, and conceivably even with the Nazis themselves. By the end of 1941, Page 14 and more so during the next two years, however, this relationship began to sour.

Apologists for the Page xvi National Party have readily demonstrated the obvious limitations of such a generic approach, pointing out that most South African groups who were clearly identified with fascism and who were proponents of a South African variety of National Socialism faded into political oblivion soon after the war, and some, even before the war was over.
