The very existence of the British Union of Fascists (BUF), formed by Oswald Mosley in October 1932 after the failure of the New Party, was enough to command the attention of the left parties, regardless of its aggressive campaigning. They invested considerable time and effort in analysing and opposing the BUF, addressing many of the issues that divide historians of fascism today, and, in so doing, have bequeathed an invaluable body of evidence, often overlooked, concerning the composition, policies and activities of Mosley's movement.
