French Socialism in the Crisis Years, 1933-1936: Fascism and the French Left

Excerpt

To the French left, the word "fascism" has a meaning that goes far beyond the type of regime which had established itself in Italy in 1922. French Socialists have been firmly convinced that the Croix de Feu and similar movements in France, if they were permitted to follow their natural evolution, would come to represent a danger to the world comparable to the forces of Mussolini or Hitler. The Socialist reactions to the challenge of these various movements followed essentially the same pattern. Hence this study is concerned with the Socialist party's atitude, not to fascism itself, but rather to what it thought of as fascism. This simplifies the question.
