I am an old forum member from back in the 2003-2005 era whose made a new username. I hope this topic is well placed and not already been over discussed (I searched for it and found nothing). if this is the wrong forum for this I appologize!
I am doing an independent study in my 4th year at the University of Richmond, VA with a professor whose focus is the Balkans and Eastern Europe. My research topic is: The Monarchies of Eastern Europe and the Balkans from 1918-1945 and their relationship with the Facist parties in their respective States.
I have been reading thus far about Romania's Iron Guard Party v. King Carol II, The interwar Fascist Parties in Hungary v. Admiral Horthy. I am aware of and plan to research King Zog of Albania and the Italian Fascist party in Albania (did they have a specific name?), King Alexandar of Yugoslavia and King Boris III of Bulgaria later this semester.
I am really trying to look at Romania, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Greece, Albania and any other monarchies (threw in horthy for good measure) that fit the bill and how they reacted to fascism abroad and more specifically inside their countries.
Books, which had relevant sections that I've read thus far:
-"Hungarians: 1000 Years of Victory in Defeat"
-"Romania in World War II"
Books I might read:
-"King Zog of Albania: Europe's Self-Made Muslim King"
-"Alexsandar of Jugoslavia: Strong Man of the Balkans"
-"Crown of Thorns: The Reign of King Boris III of Bulgaria, 1918-1943"
-"Balkan Strongmen: Dictators and Authoritarian Rulers of Southeast Europe"
Could anyone help me out with a little information? I.e.
- List of Fascist Parties in those Countries during the given time period (interwar years and wwii)
- Books/ Articles that would relate to my research topic
- Anything else useful
Thank you so much for your time and help,
