Mussolini denounced the Apocalyptic, his views Die Mumie 3 centering on Italian nationalism instead of socialism, and later founded the fascist movement which came to oppose egalitarianism [8] and class conflictinstead advocating " revolutionary nationalism " transcending class lines. In the s, Italy's foreign policy was based on the traditional idea of Italy maintaining "equidistant" stance from all the Draenor Fliegen powers in order to exercise "determinant weight", which by whatever power Italy chose to align with would decisively change the balance of power in Europe, and the price of such an alignment would be support for Italian ambitions in Europe and Africa.

However, the British government refused to accept proposals for a peace that would involve accepting Axis victories in Europe; plans for an invasion of the UK did not proceed and the war continued.

For this reason he was accused of moral and political unworthiness and the party thereupon decided to expel him Thereafter he He was the ideal editor of Avanti!

In that line of work he was greatly esteemed and beloved. Some of his former comrades and admirers still confess that there was no one who understood better how to interpret the spirit of the proletariat and there was no one who did not observe his apostasy with sorrow.

This came about not for reasons of self-interest or money. He was a sincere and passionate advocate, first of vigilant and armed neutrality, and later of war; and he did not believe that he was compromising with his personal and political honesty by making use of every means—no matter where they came from or wherever he might obtain them—to pay for his newspaper, his program and his line of action.

This was his initial line. It is difficult to say to what extent his socialist convictions which he never either openly or privately abjure may have been sacrificed in the course of the indispensable financial deals which were necessary for the continuation of the struggle in which he was engaged But assuming these modifications did take place After being ousted by the Italian Socialist Party for his support of Italian intervention, Mussolini made a radical transformation, ending his support for class conflict and joining in support of revolutionary nationalism transcending class lines.

A major source of this funding from France is believed to have been from French socialists who sent support to dissident socialists who wanted Italian intervention on France's side.

On 5 December , Mussolini denounced orthodox socialism for failing to recognize that the war had made national identity and loyalty more significant than class distinction.

The nation has not disappeared. We used to believe that the concept was totally without substance. Instead we see the nation arise as a palpitating reality before us!

Class cannot destroy the nation. Class reveals itself as a collection of interests—but the nation is a history of sentiments, traditions, language, culture, and race.

Class can become an integral part of the nation, but the one cannot eclipse the other. In such circumstances the class movement finds itself impaired by an inauspicious historic climate.

Mussolini continued to promote the need of a revolutionary vanguard elite to lead society. He no longer advocated a proletarian vanguard, but instead a vanguard led by dynamic and revolutionary people of any social class.

As for the Italian Socialist Party and its support of orthodox socialism, he claimed that his failure as a member of the party to revitalize and transform it to recognize the contemporary reality revealed the hopelessness of orthodox socialism as outdated and a failure.

These basic political views and principles formed the basis of Mussolini's newly formed political movement, the Fasci d'Azione Rivoluzionaria in , who called themselves Fascisti Fascists.

The opposition and attacks by the anti-interventionist revolutionary socialists against the Fascists and other interventionists were so violent that even democratic socialists who opposed the war such as Anna Kuliscioff said that the Italian Socialist Party had gone too far in a campaign of silencing the freedom of speech of supporters of the war.

These early hostilities between the Fascists and the revolutionary socialists shaped Mussolini's conception of the nature of Fascism in its support of political violence.

Mussolini became an ally with the irredentist politician and journalist Cesare Battisti. He was turned down because of his radical Socialism and told to wait for his reserve call up.

He was called up on 31 August and reported for duty with his old unit, the Bersaglieri. After a two-week refresher course he was sent to Isonzo front where he took part in the Second Battle of the Isonzo, September His unit also took part in the Third Battle of the Isonzo, October He was promoted to the rank of corporal "for merit in war".

The promotion was recommended because of his exemplary conduct and fighting quality, his mental calmness and lack of concern for discomfort, his zeal and regularity in carrying out his assignments, where he was always first in every task involving labor and fortitude.

Mussolini would ultimately be wounded in action in February , and was injured severely enough that he had to be evacuated from the front. Mussolini's military experience is told in his work Diario di guerra.

Overall, he totaled about nine months of active, front-line trench warfare. During this time, he contracted paratyphoid fever.

He was left with at least 40 shards of metal in his body. He wrote there positive articles about Czechoslovak Legions in Italy.

In , he had a son with Ida Dalser , a woman born in Sopramonte, a village near Trento. By the time he returned from service in the Allied forces of World War I, very little remained of Mussolini the socialist.

Indeed, he was now convinced that socialism as a doctrine had largely been a failure. This help was authorized by Sir Samuel Hoare.

The ideological basis for fascism came from a number of sources. Mussolini utilized works of Plato , Georges Sorel , Nietzsche , and the economic ideas of Vilfredo Pareto , to develop fascism.

Mussolini admired Plato's The Republic , which he often read for inspiration. The idea behind Mussolini's foreign policy was that of spazio vitale vital space , a concept in Fascism that was analogous to Lebensraum in German National Socialism.

The right to colonize the neighboring Slovene ethnic areas and the Mediterranean, being inhabited by what were alleged to be less developed peoples, was justified on the grounds that Italy was allegedly suffering from overpopulation.

Borrowing the idea first developed by Enrico Corradini before of the natural conflict between " plutocratic " nations like Britain and "proletarian" nations like Italy, Mussolini claimed that Italy's principal problem was that "plutocratic" countries like Britain were blocking Italy from achieving the necessary spazio vitale that would let the Italian economy grow.

Though biological racism was less prominent in Fascism than in National Socialism , right from the start the spazio vitale concept had a strong racist undercurrent.

Mussolini asserted there was a "natural law" for stronger peoples to subject and dominate "inferior" peoples such as the "barbaric" Slavic peoples of Yugoslavia.

He stated in a September speech:. When dealing with such a race as Slavic—inferior and barbarian—we must not pursue the carrot, but the stick policy We should not be afraid of new victims I would say we can easily sacrifice , barbaric Slavs for 50, Italians While Italy occupied former Austro-Hungarian areas between years and , five hundred "Slav" societies for example Sokol and slightly smaller number of libraries "reading rooms" had been forbidden, specifically so later with the Law on Associations , the Law on Public Demonstrations and the Law on Public Order —the closure of the classical lyceum in Pazin, of the high school in Voloska , and the five hundred Slovene and Croatian primary schools followed.

In the same way, Mussolini argued that Italy was right to follow an imperialist policy in Africa because he saw all black people as "inferior" to whites.

Mussolini believed that the United States was doomed as the American blacks had a higher birthrate than whites, making it inevitable that the blacks would take over the United States to drag it down to their level.

In Mussolini's thinking, demography was destiny; nations with rising populations were nations destined to conquer; and nations with falling populations were decaying powers that deserved to die.

Hence, the importance of natalism to Mussolini, since only by increasing the birth rate could Italy ensure that its future as a great power that would win its spazio vitale would be assured.

Mussolini and the fascists managed to be simultaneously revolutionary and traditionalist ; [84] [85] because this was vastly different from anything else in the political climate of the time, it is sometimes described [ by whom?

The blackshirts clashed with communists, socialists, and anarchists at parades and demonstrations; all of these factions were also involved in clashes against each other.

The Italian government rarely interfered with the blackshirts' actions, owing in part to a looming threat and widespread fear of a communist revolution.

The Fascisti grew rapidly; within two years they transformed themselves into the National Fascist Party at a congress in Rome. In , Mussolini won election to the Chamber of Deputies for the first time.

In the night between 27 and 28 October , about 30, Fascist blackshirts gathered in Rome to demand the resignation of liberal Prime Minister Luigi Facta and the appointment of a new Fascist government.

On the morning of 28 October, King Victor Emmanuel III , who according to the Albertine Statute held the supreme military power, refused the government request to declare martial law , which led to Facta's resignation.

The King then handed over power to Mussolini who stayed in his headquarters in Milan during the talks by asking him to form a new government.

The King's controversial decision has been explained by historians as a combination of delusions and fears; Mussolini enjoyed wide support in the military and among the industrial and agrarian elites, while the King and the conservative establishment were afraid of a possible civil war and ultimately thought they could use Mussolini to restore law and order in the country, but failed to foresee the danger of a totalitarian evolution.

As Prime Minister, the first years of Mussolini's rule were characterized by a right-wing coalition government composed of Fascists, nationalists, liberals, and two Catholic clerics from the Popular Party.

The Fascists made up a small minority in his original governments. Mussolini's domestic goal was the eventual establishment of a totalitarian state with himself as supreme leader Il Duce , a message that was articulated by the Fascist newspaper Il Popolo , which was now edited by Mussolini's brother, Arnaldo.

To that end, Mussolini obtained from the legislature dictatorial powers for one year legal under the Italian constitution of the time. He favored the complete restoration of state authority, with the integration of the Fasci di Combattimento into the armed forces the foundation in January of the Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezza Nazionale and the progressive identification of the party with the state.

In political and social economy, he passed legislation that favored the wealthy industrial and agrarian classes privatizations, liberalizations of rent laws and dismantlement of the unions.

In , Mussolini sent Italian forces to invade Corfu during the Corfu incident. In the end, the League of Nations proved powerless, and Greece was forced to comply with Italian demands.

In June , the government passed the Acerbo Law , which transformed Italy into a single national constituency. The assassination of the socialist deputy Giacomo Matteotti , who had requested that the elections be annulled because of the irregularities, [90] provoked a momentary crisis in the Mussolini government.

Mussolini ordered a cover-up, but witnesses saw the car that transported Matteotti's body parked outside Matteotti's residence, which linked Amerigo Dumini to the murder.

Mussolini later confessed that a few resolute men could have altered public opinion and started a coup that would have swept fascism away.

Dumini was imprisoned for two years. On his release, Dumini allegedly told other people that Mussolini was responsible, for which he served further prison time.

The opposition parties responded weakly or were generally unresponsive. Many of the socialists, liberals, and moderates boycotted Parliament in the Aventine Secession , hoping to force Victor Emmanuel to dismiss Mussolini.

On 31 December , MVSN consuls met with Mussolini and gave him an ultimatum: crush the opposition or they would do so without him. Fearing a revolt by his own militants, Mussolini decided to drop all pretense of democracy.

German-American historian Konrad Jarausch has argued that Mussolini was responsible for an integrated suite of political innovations that made fascism a powerful force in Europe.

First, he went beyond the vague promise of future national renewal, and proved the movement could actually seize power and operate a comprehensive government in a major country along fascist lines.

Second, the movement claimed to represent the entire national community, not a fragment such as the working class or the aristocracy.

He made a significant effort to include the previously alienated Catholic element. He defined public roles for the main sectors of the business community rather than allowing it to operate backstage.

Third, he developed a cult of one-man leadership that focused media attention and national debate on his own personality. As a former journalist, Mussolini proved highly adept at exploiting all forms of mass media, including such new forms as motion pictures and radio.

Fourth, he created a mass membership party, with free programs for young men, young women, and various other groups who could therefore be more readily mobilized and monitored.

He shut down all alternative political formations and parties but this step was not an innovation by any means. Like all dictators he made liberal use of the threat of extrajudicial violence, as well as actual violence by his Blackshirts, to frighten his opposition.

Between and , Mussolini progressively dismantled virtually all constitutional and conventional restraints on his power and built a police state.

A law passed on 24 December —Christmas Eve for the largely Roman Catholic country—changed Mussolini's formal title from "President of the Council of Ministers" to "Head of the Government", although he was still called "Prime Minister" by most non-Italian news sources.

He was no longer responsible to Parliament and could be removed only by the King. While the Italian constitution stated that ministers were responsible only to the sovereign, in practice it had become all but impossible to govern against the express will of Parliament.

The Christmas Eve law ended this practice, and also made Mussolini the only person competent to determine the body's agenda. This law transformed Mussolini's government into a de facto legal dictatorship.

On 7 April , Mussolini survived a first assassination attempt by Violet Gibson , an Irish woman and daughter of Lord Ashbourne , who was deported after her arrest.

Zamboni was lynched on the spot. All other parties were outlawed following Zamboni's assassination attempt in , though in practice Italy had been a one-party state since with either his January speech to the Chamber or the passage of the Christmas Eve law, depending on the source.

In the same year, an electoral law abolished parliamentary elections. Instead, the Grand Council of Fascism selected a single list of candidates to be approved by plebiscite.

The Grand Council had been created five years earlier as a party body but was "constitutionalized" and became the highest constitutional authority in the state.

On paper, the Grand Council had the power to recommend Mussolini's removal from office, and was thus theoretically the only check on his power.

However, only Mussolini could summon the Grand Council and determine its agenda. To gain control of the South, especially Sicily , he appointed Cesare Mori as a Prefect of the city of Palermo, with the charge of eradicating the Mafia at any price.

In the telegram, Mussolini wrote to Mori:. Your Excellency has carte blanche; the authority of the State must absolutely, I repeat absolutely, be re-established in Sicily.

If the laws still in force hinder you, this will be no problem, as we will draw up new laws. Mori did not hesitate to lay siege to towns, using torture, and holding women and children as hostages to oblige suspects to give themselves up.

These harsh methods earned him the nickname of "Iron Prefect". In , Mori's inquiries brought evidence of collusion between the Mafia and the Fascist establishment, and he was dismissed for length of service in , at which time the number of murders in Palermo Province had decreased from to Mussolini nominated Mori as a senator, and fascist propaganda claimed that the Mafia had been defeated.

General elections were held in the form of a referendum on 24 March By this time, the country was a single-party state with the National Fascist Party PNF as the only legally permitted party.

The list put forward was ultimately approved by In , the Italian state had brought in a series of liberal reforms in Libya that allowed education in Arabic and Berber and allowed for the possibility that the Libyans might become Italian citizens.

As for overall strategy, it is necessary to create a significant and clear separation between the controlled population and the rebel formations.

I do not hide the significance and seriousness of this measure, which might be the ruin of the subdued population But now the course has been set, and we must carry it out to the end, even if the entire population of Cyrenaica must perish.

On 3 January , Mussolini told the diplomat Baron Pompei Aloisi that the French in Tunisia had made an "appalling blunder" by permitting sex between the French and the Tunisians, which he predicted would lead to the French degenerating into a nation of " half-castes ", and to prevent the same thing happening to the Italians gave orders to Marshal Badoglio that miscegenation be made a crime in Libya.

Mussolini launched several public construction programs and government initiatives throughout Italy to combat economic setbacks or unemployment levels.

His earliest and one of the best known was the Battle for Wheat , by which 5, new farms were established and five new agricultural towns among them Littoria and Sabaudia on land reclaimed by draining the Pontine Marshes.

In Sardinia , a model agricultural town was founded and named Mussolinia , but has long since been renamed Arborea. This town was the first of what Mussolini hoped would have been thousands of new agricultural settlements across the country.

The Battle for Wheat diverted valuable resources to wheat production away from other more economically viable crops. Landowners grew wheat on unsuitable soil using all the advances of modern science, and although the wheat harvest increased, prices rose, consumption fell and high tariffs were imposed.

Mussolini also initiated the "Battle for Land", a policy based on land reclamation outlined in The initiative had a mixed success; while projects such as the draining of the Pontine Marsh in for agriculture were good for propaganda purposes, provided work for the unemployed and allowed for great land owners to control subsidies, other areas in the Battle for Land were not very successful.

This program was inconsistent with the Battle for Wheat small plots of land were inappropriately allocated for large-scale wheat production , and the Pontine Marsh was lost during World War II.

Fewer than 10, peasants resettled on the redistributed land, and peasant poverty remained high. The Battle for Land initiative was abandoned in In , in " The Doctrine of Fascism " he wrote, "The so-called crisis can only be settled by State action and within the orbit of the State.

Even Rachele Mussolini donated her wedding ring. The collected gold was melted down and turned into gold bars, which were then distributed to the national banks.

Government control of business was part of Mussolini's policy planning. By , he claimed that three-quarters of Italian businesses were under state control.

Later that year, Mussolini issued several edicts to further control the economy, e. In , he imposed price controls.

In , Mussolini proposed the theory of economic socialization. Mussolini was keen to take the credit for major public works in Italy, particularly the railway system.

The difference between the Italian railway service in , and and that which obtained during the first year of the Mussolini regime was almost beyond belief.

The cars were clean, the employees were snappy and courteous, and trains arrived at and left the stations on time — not fifteen minutes late, and not five minutes late; but on the minute.

In fact, the improvement in Italy's dire post-war railway system had begun before Mussolini took power. Bergen Evans wrote in The author was employed as a courier by the Franco-Belgique Tours Company in the summer of , the height of Mussolini's heyday, when a fascist guard rode on every train, and is willing to make an affidavit to the effect that most Italian trains on which he travelled were not on schedule—or near it.

There must be thousands who can support this attestation. It's a trifle, but it's worth nailing down. George Seldes wrote in that although the express trains carrying tourists generally—though not always—ran on schedule, the same was not true for the smaller lines, where delays were frequent, [] while Ruth Ben-Ghiat has said that "they improved the lines that had a political meaning to them".

Mussolini's foremost priority was the subjugation of the minds of the Italian people through the use of propaganda. The regime promoted a lavish cult of personality centered on the figure of Mussolini.

He pretended to incarnate the new fascist Übermensch , promoting an aesthetic of exasperated Machismo that attributed to him quasi-divine capacities.

Sometimes he held as many as seven departments simultaneously, as well as the premiership. He was also head of the all-powerful Fascist Party and the armed local fascist militia, the MVSN or "Blackshirts", who terrorized incipient resistance in the cities and provinces.

He would later form the OVRA , an institutionalized secret police that carried official state support. In this way he succeeded in keeping power in his own hands and preventing the emergence of any rival.

Mussolini also portrayed himself as a valiant sportsman and a skilled musician. All teachers in schools and universities had to swear an oath to defend the fascist regime.

Newspaper editors were all personally chosen by Mussolini, and only those in possession of a certificate of approval from the Fascist Party could practice journalism.

These certificates were issued in secret; Mussolini thus skillfully created the illusion of a "free press". The trade unions were also deprived of any independence and were integrated into what was called the "corporative" system.

The aim, inspired by medieval guilds and never completely achieved, was to place all Italians in various professional organizations or corporations , all under clandestine governmental control.

Large sums of money were spent on highly visible public works and on international prestige projects.

The principles of the doctrine of Fascism were laid down in an article by eminent philosopher Giovanni Gentile and Mussolini himself that appeared in in the Enciclopedia Italiana.

Mussolini always portrayed himself as an intellectual, and some historians agree. Nationalists in the years after World War I thought of themselves as combating the liberal and domineering institutions created by cabinets —such as those of Giovanni Giolitti , including traditional schooling.

Futurism , a revolutionary cultural movement which would serve as a catalyst for Fascism, argued for "a school for physical courage and patriotism", as expressed by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in Marinetti expressed his disdain for "the by now prehistoric and troglodyte Ancient Greek and Latin courses", arguing for their replacement with exercise modelled on those of the Arditi soldiers "[learning] to advance on hands and knees in front of razing machine gun fire; to wait open-eyed for a crossbeam to move sideways over their heads etc.

After the March on Rome that brought Mussolini to power, the Fascists started considering ways to politicize Italian society, with an accent on education.

Mussolini assigned former ardito and deputy-secretary for Education Renato Ricci the task of "reorganizing the youth from a moral and physical point of view.

The Opera Nazionale Balilla was created through Mussolini's decree of 3 April , and was led by Ricci for the following eleven years.

It included children between the ages of 8 and 18, grouped as the Balilla and the Avanguardisti. According to Mussolini: "Fascist education is moral, physical, social, and military: it aims to create a complete and harmoniously developed human, a fascist one according to our views".

Mussolini structured this process taking in view the emotional side of childhood: "Childhood and adolescence alike The truth we aim to teach them should appeal foremost to their fantasy, to their hearts, and only then to their minds".

The "educational value set through action and example" was to replace the established approaches. Fascism opposed its version of idealism to prevalent rationalism , and used the Opera Nazionale Balilla to circumvent educational tradition by imposing the collective and hierarchy, as well as Mussolini's own personality cult.

Another important constituent of the Fascist cultural policy was Roman Catholicism. In , a concordat with the Vatican was signed, ending decades of struggle between the Italian state and the Papacy that dated back to the takeover of the Papal States by the House of Savoy during the unification of Italy.

The Lateran treaties , by which the Italian state was at last recognized by the Roman Catholic Church, and the independence of Vatican City was recognized by the Italian state, were so much appreciated by the ecclesiastic hierarchy that Pope Pius XI acclaimed Mussolini as "the Man of Providence".

The treaty included a legal provision whereby the Italian government would protect the honor and dignity of the Pope by prosecuting offenders.

After , Mussolini, with his anti-Communist doctrines, convinced many Catholics to actively support him. In foreign policy, Mussolini was pragmatic and opportunistic.

At the center of his vision lay the dream to forge a new Roman Empire in Africa and the Balkans , vindicating the so-called " mutilated victory " of imposed by the "plutodemocracies" Britain and France that betrayed the Treaty of London and usurped the supposed "natural right" of Italy to achieve supremacy in the Mediterranean basin.

In the s, Italy's foreign policy was based on the traditional idea of Italy maintaining "equidistant" stance from all the major powers in order to exercise "determinant weight", which by whatever power Italy chose to align with would decisively change the balance of power in Europe, and the price of such an alignment would be support for Italian ambitions in Europe and Africa.

In his early years in power, Mussolini operated as a pragmatic statesman, trying to achieve some advantages, but never at the risk of war with Britain and France.

An exception was the bombardment and occupation of Corfu in , following an incident in which Italian military personnel charged by the League of Nations to settle a boundary dispute between Greece and Albania were assassinated by bandits; the nationality of the bandits remains unclear.

At the time of the Corfu incident, Mussolini was prepared to go to war with Britain, and only desperate pleading by the Italian Navy leadership, who argued that the Italian Navy was no match for the British Royal Navy, persuaded Mussolini to accept a diplomatic solution.

When the Austrian 'austro-fascist' Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss with dictatorial power was assassinated on 25 July by National-Socialist supporters, Mussolini even threatened Germany with war in the event of a German invasion of Austria.

Mussolini for a period of time continued strictly opposing any German attempt to obtain Anschluss and promoted the ephemeral Stresa Front against Germany in Despite Mussolini's imprisonment for opposing the Italo-Turkish War in Africa as "nationalist delirium tremens " and "a miserable war of conquest", [26] after the Abyssinia Crisis of —, in the Second Italo—Ethiopian War Italy invaded Ethiopia following border incidents occasioned by Italian inclusions over the vaguely drawn border between Ethiopia and Italian Somaliland.

Historians are still divided about the reasons for the attack on Ethiopia in Some Italian historians such as Franco Catalano and Giorgio Rochat argue that the invasion was an act of social imperialism , contending that the Great Depression had badly damaged Mussolini's prestige, and that he needed a foreign war to distract public opinion.

Confident of having been given free hand by French Premier Pierre Laval , and certain that the British and French would be forgiving because of his opposition to Hitler's revisionism within the Stresa front, Mussolini received with disdain the League of Nations' economic sanctions imposed on Italy by initiative of London and Paris.

The international mood was now against colonialist expansion and Italy's actions were condemned. Furthermore, Italy was criticized for its use of mustard gas and phosgene against its enemies and also for its zero tolerance approach to enemy guerrillas, authorized by Mussolini.

Without a policy of ten eyes to one, we cannot heal this wound in good time". The sanctions against Italy were used by Mussolini as a pretext for an alliance with Germany.

On 11 July , an Austro-German treaty was signed under which Austria declared itself to be a "German state" whose foreign policy would always be aligned with Berlin, and allowed for pro-Nazis to enter the Austrian cabinet.

The Foreign Office understood that it was the Spanish Civil War that was pulling Rome and Berlin closer together, and believed if Mussolini could be persuaded to disengage from Spain, then he would return to the Allied camp.

The American historian Barry Sullivan wrote that both the British and the French very much wanted a rapprochement with Italy to undo the damage caused by the League of Nations sanctions, and that "Mussolini chose to ally with Hitler, rather than being forced…" [].

Reflecting the new pro-German foreign policy on 25 October , Mussolini agreed to form a Rome-Berlin Axis , sanctioned by a cooperation agreement with Nazi Germany and signed in Berlin.

Furthermore, the conquest of Ethiopia cost the lives of 12, Italians and another 4, to 5, Libyans, Eritreans, and Somalis fighting in Italian service.

From through , Mussolini provided huge amounts of military support to the Nationalists in the Spanish Civil War.

This active intervention on the side of Franco further distanced Italy from France and Britain. As a result, Mussolini's relationship with Adolf Hitler became closer, and he chose to accept the German annexation of Austria in , followed by the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia in In May , during Hitler's visit to Italy, Mussolini told the Führer that Italy and France were deadly enemies fighting on "opposite sides of the barricade" concerning the Spanish Civil War, and the Stresa Front was "dead and buried".

The Axis agreement with Germany was strengthened by signing the Pact of Steel on 22 May , that bound together Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany in a full military alliance.

By the late s, Mussolini's obsession with demography led him to conclude that Britain and France were finished as powers, and that it was Germany and Italy who were destined to rule Europe if for no other reason than their demographic strength.

Mussolini believed that France was a "weak and old" nation as the French weekly death rate exceeded the birthrate by 2,, and he had no interest in an alliance with France.

Such was the extent of Mussolini's belief that it was Italy's destino to rule the Mediterranean because of Italy's high birth rate that he neglected much of the serious planning and preparations necessary for a war with the Western powers.

Count Galeazzo Ciano , Mussolini's son-in-law and foreign minister, summed up the dictator's foreign policy objectives regarding France in an entry of his diary dated 8 November Djibouti would have to be ruled in common with France; "Tunisia, with a more or less similar regime; Corsica , Italian and never Frenchified and therefore under our direct control, the border at the river Var.

In January , the British prime minister, Neville Chamberlain , visited Rome, during which visit Mussolini learned that though Britain very much wanted better relations with Italy, and was prepared to make concessions, it would not sever all ties with France for the sake of an improved Anglo-Italian relationship.

The new course was not without its critics. On 21 March during a meeting of the Fascist Grand Council, Italo Balbo accused Mussolini of "licking Hitler's boots", blasted the Duce's pro-German foreign policy as leading Italy to disaster and noted that the "opening to Britain" still existed and it was not inevitable that Italy had to ally with Germany.

Italy defeated Albania within just five days, forcing king Zog to flee and setting up a period of Albania under Italy. Until May , the Axis had not been entirely official, but during that month the Pact of Steel treaty was signed outlining the " friendship and alliance" between Germany and Italy, signed by each of its foreign ministers.

Italy's King Victor Emanuel III was also wary of the pact, favoring the more traditional Italian allies like France, and fearful of the implications of an offensive military alliance, which in effect meant surrendering control over questions of war and peace to Hitler.

Hitler was intent on invading Poland, though Ciano warned this would likely lead to war with the Allies. Hitler dismissed Ciano's comment, predicting instead that Britain and the other Western countries would back down, and he suggested that Italy should invade Yugoslavia.

Most significantly, Victor Emmanuel had demanded neutrality in the dispute. In September , France swung to the opposite extreme, offering to discuss issues with Italy, but as the French were unwilling to discuss Corsica , Nice and Savoy , Mussolini did not answer.

Convinced that the war would soon be over, with a German victory looking likely at that point, Mussolini decided to enter the war on the Axis side.

Accordingly, Italy declared war on Britain and France on 10 June Mussolini regarded the war against Britain and France as a life-or-death struggle between opposing ideologies—fascism and the "plutocratic and reactionary democracies of the west"—describing the war as "the struggle of the fertile and young people against the sterile people moving to the sunset; it is the struggle between two centuries and two ideas", and as a "logical development of our Revolution".

Just eleven days later, France and Germany signed an armistice. Included in Italian-controlled France were most of Nice and other southeastern counties.

Advances were successful, but the Italians stopped at Sidi Barrani waiting for logistic supplies to catch up. After initial success, this backfired as the Greek counterattack proved relentless, resulting in Italy losing one-quarter of Albania.

Events in Africa had changed by early as Operation Compass had forced the Italians back into Libya , causing high losses in the Italian Army. Despite putting up some resistance, they were overwhelmed at the Battle of Keren , and the Italian defense started to crumble with a final defeat in the Battle of Gondar.

When addressing the Italian public on the events, Mussolini was completely open about the situation, saying "We call bread bread and wine wine, and when the enemy wins a battle it is useless and ridiculous to seek, as the English do in their incomparable hypocrisy, to deny or diminish it.

General Mario Robotti , Commander of the Italian 11th division in Slovenia and Croatia, issued an order in line with a directive received from Mussolini in June "I would not be opposed to all sic Slovenes being imprisoned and replaced by Italians.

In other words, we should take steps to ensure that political and ethnic frontiers coincide". Mussolini first learned of Operation Barbarossa after the invasion of the Soviet Union had begun on 22 June , and was not asked by Hitler to involve himself.

A night telephone call from Ribbentrop. He is overjoyed about the Japanese attack on America. He is so happy about it that I am happy with him, though I am not too sure about the final advantages of what has happened.

One thing is now certain, that America will enter the conflict and that the conflict will be so long that she will be able to realize all her potential forces.

This morning I told this to the King who had been pleased about the event. He ended by admitting that, in the long run, I may be right. Mussolini was happy, too.

For a long time he has favored a definite clarification of relations between America and the Axis. By early , Italy's military position had become untenable.

After the defeat at El Alamein at the end of , the Axis troops had to retreat to where they were finally defeated in the Tunisia Campaign in early Italy suffered major setbacks on the Eastern Front as well.

The Allied invasion of Sicily brought the war to the nation's very doorstep. Factories all over Italy were brought to a virtual standstill because raw materials , such as coal and oil, were lacking.

Additionally, there was a chronic shortage of food, and what food was available was being sold at nearly confiscatory prices. Mussolini's once-ubiquitous propaganda machine lost its grip on the people; a large number of Italians turned to Vatican Radio or Radio London for more accurate news coverage.

Discontent came to a head in March with a wave of labor strikes in the industrial north—the first large-scale strikes since The German presence in Italy had sharply turned public opinion against Mussolini; for example, when the Allies invaded Sicily, the majority of the public there welcomed them as liberators.

Earlier in April , Mussolini had persuaded Hitler to make a separate peace with Stalin and send German troops to the west to guard against an expected Allied invasion of Italy.

Mussolini feared that with the losses in Tunisia and North Africa, the next logical step for Allied General Dwight Eisenhower 's armies would be to come across the Mediterranean and attack the Italian peninsula.

Within a few days of the Allied landings on Sicily in July , it was obvious Mussolini's army was on the brink of collapse.

This led Hitler to summon Mussolini to a meeting in Feltre on 19 July By this time, Mussolini was so shaken from stress that he could no longer stand Hitler's boasting.

His mood darkened further when that same day, the Allies bombed Rome —the first time that city had ever been the target of enemy bombing.

By this point, some prominent members of Mussolini's government had turned against him. Among them were Grandi and Ciano.

Several of his colleagues were close to revolt, and Mussolini was forced to summon the Grand Council on 24 July This was the first time the body had met since the start of the war.

When he announced that the Germans were thinking of evacuating the south, Grandi launched a blistering attack on him. This motion carried by a 19—8 margin.

He did, however, ask Grandi to consider the possibility that this motion would spell the end of Fascism. Click any of the example images below to view a larger version.

Fact File:. Student Activities:. Who are Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini? Benito Mussolini, the Italian fascist, had been governing Italy since and Adolf Hitler acknowledged the role played by Italian fascism in starting Nazi Germany.

Though a cautious alliance was made and they met several times—even signing the Pact of Steel in —the relationship between them was bumpy and complex.

Mussolini refused to help Hitler during his impromptu invasion of Poland in September He claimed that Italian industry and military production was not yet ready.

As a result, the alliance formed was not as firm as many anticipated. Despite being military allies by the late s, Germany and Italy still had their own priorities and national interests and were cautious in supporting the interests or ambitions of the other.

This alliance between Nazi Germany and fascist Italy was formed out of convenience and experience. Who was Adolf Hitler?

He rose to power as a dictator, Chancellor of Germany from to , and Führer leader from to Before he became a dictator, Hitler volunteered for the army in World War I.

He is most certainly one of the most controversial, cruel, and immoral people in the twentieth century. During his tyranny, he initiated World War II by invading Poland in and promoted anti-Semitism through his racially motivated ideology over the German racial hierarchy.

With his strong state police, he was able to inflict fear and gain support from the Germans. His ideologies, embodied in the Nazi Party, were regarded as gravely immoral to such a point that Ian Kershaw said: "Never in history has such ruination — physical and moral — been associated with the name of one man.

On January 3, , he asserted the right to supreme power and became dictator and Il Duce the leader of Italy.

Before he became a dictator, he was a political journalist in World War I. He developed a negative view towards socialism and communism as he blamed them for prioritizing class distinctions over unity of the nation during the war.

During his dictatorship, he established the Italian fascist movement and became one of the best known and key personas of fascism.

Afterwards, he imprisoned anti-Fascists, arrested all Communist and Socialist Parliament members, and screened government propaganda with the help of his strong police state.

Throughout his tyranny, he and his followers with their combined powers created a series of laws that converted the entire nation of Italy into a one-party dictatorship.

Formation of the Alliance Hitler was a great admirer of Mussolini, especially in his early years as leader of the Nazi Party.

The protest succeeded and Mussolini became prime minister.

Hitler Mussolini - Benito Mussolini und Adolf Hitler auf einer Aufnahme von 1942.

In dieser Situation besetzten deutsche Truppen Italien und befreiten Mussolini in einer spektakulären Aktion. Das verdient Respekt, zumal es ihm auch gelingt, die wechselnden gegenseitigen Wahrnehmungen und Einschätzungen der beiden Diktatoren und den gar nicht zu überschätzenden Stellenwert von "Führer" und "Duce" für die faschistische Allianz überzeugend herauszuarbeiten. Die Propagierung "alter Tugenden" waren Werte auf die sich viele einigen konnten.

The racial laws declared Italians to be part of the Aryan race and forbid sexual relations and marriages between Italians and those considered to be of an "inferior race", chiefly Jews and Africans.

They could not own land over a certain value, serve in the armed forces, employ non-Jewish domestics, or belong to the Fascist party.

Their employment in banks, insurance companies, and public schools was forbidden. Even after the introduction of the racial laws , Mussolini continued to make contradictory statements about race.

I don't believe a bit in the stupid anti-Semitic theory. I am carrying out my policy entirely for political reasons. Mussolini and the Italian Army in occupied regions openly opposed German efforts to deport Italian Jews to Nazi concentration camps.

These squads spread terror among Jews and anti-Fascists for a year and a half. In the power vacuum that existed during the first three or four months of the occupation, the semi-autonomous bands were virtually uncontrollable.

Many were linked to individual high-ranking Fascist politicians. Informers betrayed their neighbors, squadristi seized Jews and delivered them to the German SS, and Italian journalists seemed to compete in the virulence of their anti-Semitic diatribes.

It has been widely speculated that Mussolini adopted the Manifesto of Race in for merely tactical reasons, to strengthen Italy's relations with Germany.

Mussolini and the Italian military did not consistently apply the laws adopted in the Manifesto of Race. The Racial Manifesto could have been avoided.

It dealt with the scientific abstruseness of a few teachers and journalists, a conscientious German essay translated into bad Italian. It is far from what I have said, written and signed on the subject.

I suggest that you consult the old issues of Il Popolo d'Italia. For this reason I am far from accepting Alfred Rosenberg 's myth. Mussolini also reached out to the Muslims in his empire and in the predominantly Arab countries of the Middle East.

A third son, Bruno, was killed in an air accident while flying a Piaggio P. His oldest son, Benito Albino Mussolini , from his marriage with Ida Dalser, was ordered to stop declaring that Mussolini was his father and in forcibly committed to an asylum in Milan, where he was murdered on 26 August after repeated coma-inducing injections.

Although the National Fascist Party was outlawed by the postwar Constitution of Italy , a number of successor neo-fascist parties emerged to carry on its legacy.

Historically, the largest neo-fascist party was the Italian Social Movement Movimento Sociale Italiano , which disbanded in and was replaced by National Alliance , a conservative party that distanced itself from Fascism its founder, former foreign minister Gianfranco Fini , declared during an official visit to Israel that Fascism was "an absolute evil".

Benito Mussolini, with a surfeit of bad history decaying in his imagination, could not see the plain realities before him. Like most of his generation he dramatised human affairs in incurably geographical patches, and like most of the masterful men of his time his belief in his power to mould the life about him carried him beyond sanity.

From the beginning his was an ill-balanced temperament; he would be blatant at one moment, and weeping at another.

He beat at the knees of Mother Reality like an unteachable child. He wanted war and conquest, triumph over definable enemies, fierce alliances, and unforgettable antagonisms.

He wanted glory. He died, as his last words testify, completely unaware of the fact that the rational treatment of human affairs does not admit of that bilaterality which the traditions of warfare require.

He persuaded himself and he persuaded great multitudes of people that two great systems of ideas faced each other in the world, "Leftism" and "Rightism", and that he and his associated Dictators embodied the latter.

He did contrive finally to impose the illusion of a definitive World War upon great masses of people. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Italian dictator and founder of fascism.

When Hitler finally ascended into power in the German election, he was publicly praised by Mussolini, who hailed it as a victory for his own fascist ideology and he began giving Hitler advice on tactics.

This was just for the cameras, though, because in private Mussolini criticized Hitler and his party. Mussolini was known to be self-obsessed and an egomaniac.

The first meeting between Mussolini and Hitler in Venice in June was a disaster. Mussolini showcased his arrogance as his German was not fluent, but he refused to use a translator.

Hitler engaged in long monologues, and Mussolini soon became bored. This meeting only served to worsen the relationship between them, even though Nazi and Italian fascist propaganda of the s suggested a close working relationship.

They also had different views on race. Both considered white Europeans as the founders of civilization and culture, but they differed on anti-Semitism and eugenics.

Mussolini was an Italian nationalist who usually glorified ancient Rome for its triumphs. Out of convenience, Hitler and Mussolini managed to put their differences aside and a degree of co-operation was achieved.
