Mussolini the Condottiere and Statesman

Was the Duce a great leader?

From: Mussolini Also Did A Lot of Good


This chapter looks at Mussolini as a leader and soldier, and looks at the not-so-glorious reality of Fascist Italy’s military achievements. It discusses Italy’s colonial aspirations and devastating impact on Somalia, Libya, and Ethiopia in particular.
