With the benefit of hindsight, it can be difficult to imagine that people in Britain were ever unsure about what Nazism stood for, yet it was the case that early impressions were developed without knowledge of what was to come, and it is with this in mind that their accuracy or otherwise should be judged today. As Nazism followed its winding course from the margins of German political life, in Britain it was the far left that subjected it to the closest scrutiny. Although British Marxism became increasingly associated with the Communist Party of Great Britain in the 1920s, some of the smaller revolutionary groups active in the early part of the decade were also perceptive observers of the young Nazi movement, and it was in their publications that several of the first reports on it appeared.
