The /Nazis of Copley Square/ provides a crucial missing chapter in the 
history of the American far right. The men of the Christian Front 
imagined themselves as crusaders fighting for the spiritual purification 
of the nation, under assault from godless Communism, and they were 
hardly alone in their beliefs. Gallagher chronicles the evolution of the 
Front, the transatlantic cloak-and-dagger intelligence operations that 
subverted it, and the mainstream political and religious leaders who 
shielded the Front’s activities from scrutiny. This grim tale of faith 
perverted to violent ends serves as a warning for those who hope to curb 
the spread of far-right ideologies today.
