During the Second World War, there was one man who was idolised and best friends with Adolf Hitler. Benito Mussolini had risen to prominence in Italy with his fascist party long before Hitler did with the Nazis in Germany, and both of them became very close. During World War 2, Mussolini allied himself with the Nazis and Italy joined the Axis forces, and he pledged much support in terms of his army to Hitler and the two became inseparable. There were regular meetings between both of them, but as the Second World War played out, things went poorly for the Italians.
They fought in North Africa and alongside the Germans in Europe, however they were nowhere near as good a military as the Germans, and they suffered big losses. Mussolini himself was ousted out of power, and was captured during the conflict before Hitler arranged for him to be broken out of captivity. However as World War 2 was coming to an end, Mussolini was on the run from the Partisan government running Italy who wanted to execute any remaining members of the Fascist government. Mussolini eventually was captured, and his death was hastily arranged.
He was captured alongside his mistress Clara Petacci, and together they were executed close to Lake Como by assassins who shot them both. Their bodies were then taken to Milan and displayed publicly in which an angry mob targeted them with abuse. Shortly after Mussolini’s death, Hitler then got his final affairs in order before he too died days later inside his bunker in Berlin.
So join us today as we look at, ‘The BRUTAL Execution Of Benito Mussolini, Italy’s Dictator.’
