From Cairo to Damascus: Under cover amongst the fascists
Solomonia presented, in June, a series of extracts from John Roy Carlson's 1943 book, Under Cover (1943), an expose of the American fascist movement of the pre-WWII period. Now, he is presenting a series of extracts from Cairo to Damascus (1951), in which Carlson travels the Middle East during Israel's War of Independence. Both series are fascinating. Check out the whole series here (I'd start at the bottom, print out all the posts in chronological order and read 'em all).
