Hot take: The Code of The Woosters did more work to domesticate the idea of English fascism than a hundred approving works could have.
Yeah, take that Sir Pelham.
For what it’s worth, I don’t think Wodehouse was remotely a Nazi sympathiser, but the defences of his broadcasts from Berlin - such as Christopher Hitchens’ here - really have to do some work to make it stick.
Wodehouse was recommended to the German foreign office by the English collaborator John Amery (later executed for treason). If Wodehouse would agree to broadcast about the good conditions in Nazi internment camps, he would be released from internment.
