Searching for Lord Haw-Haw: The Political Lives of William Joyce (Routledge Studies in Fascism and the Far Right) - Colin Holmes

I'm conflicted as to how I feel about this book. In one respect it is an amazing work that goes far in illuminating the often murky details of William Joyce's life and his place in the British fascist movement. And yet I can't get past how choppily written it is, with fragment sentences, switching between tenses, and a sometimes curious chapter organization. Fortunately these issues don't detract too much from its value -- but I can't help but think how much of a better book it could have been.
