Young Trudeau: 1919-1944

£9.99

Product description

Volume One. Paperback. This book shines a light of devastating clarity on French-Canadian society in the 1930s and 1940s, when young elites were raised to be pro-fascist, and democratic and liberal were terms of criticism. The model leaders to be admired were good Catholic dictators like Mussolini, Salazar in Portugal, Franco in Spain, and especially Pétain, collaborator with the Nazis in Vichy France. There were even demonstrations against Jews who were demonstrating against what the Nazis were doing in Germany.Trudeau, far from being the rebel that other biographers have claimed, embraced this ideology. At his elite school, Brébeuf, he was a model student, the editor of the school magazine, and admired by the staff and his fellow students. But the fascist ideas and the people he admired - even when the war was going on, as late as 1944 - included extremists so terrible that at the war's end they were shot. And then there's his manifesto and his plan to stage a revolution against les Anglais.This is astonishing material - and it's all demonstrably true - based on personal papers of Trudeau that the authors were allowed to access after his death.What they have found has astounded and distressed them, but they both agree that the truth must be published. Translated from the forthcoming French edition by William Johnson, this explosive book is sure to hit the headlines.

Oxfam Bookshop Newark

Known as 'The key to the North', Newark is positioned on the Fosse Way and the Great North Road and is a market town steeped in the history of the English Civil War.

It boasts the UK's only Civil War centre, a dramatic ruined castle on the banks of the river Trent, with a broad hidden heritage of tunnels and cellars and the Queen's Sconce earthworks.

There is a delightful market square with quirky sixteenth century buildings and the magnificent eighteenth century Town Hall. St Mary Magdalene Church's Gothic spire has a hole where a cannonball was fired in the Civil war…lots to see…lots of shops…. good connections.

Come and see us especially for History books, and all other categories of readable material for all ages. We have lots of specialist books and collectibles and we sell Music, Records and CDs/DVDs. We have lovely and humorous cards for every occasion, diaries and other Fair Trade goods. We also sell online.

Our donated stock comes from Newark and the surrounding villages and we will collect from anyone who needs us.

Our volunteer team is from many interesting backgrounds, offering a wealth of knowledge and skills.

We are proud of our 11 year old shop and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
