This book is a newly revised edition of Nicholas M Nagy-Talavera's classic work The Green Shirts and the Others published by the Hoover Institution Press in 1970. Long out-of-print, this book is the standard work in English on the history of Fascism in Romania and Hungary. This book is the first comprehensive and comparative work in English on the history of the Fascist movements in Hungary and Romania. The author presents an objective account of the history of the two countries from 1918 to 1945 and the role of Fascist movements during these years. He considers the rise of these movements, the Arrow Cross in Hungary and the Legion of the Archangel Michael in Romania. He considers their evolution and growth during the interwar period, as well as the tragic periods in which each movement came to power in its respective country. The author then draws conclusions and parallels from the comparative history of the two movements. In this new edition, the author has updated the book in light of recent research. The bibliography has also been expanded.
