Mussolini the Humanitarian

Was the Duce a "benign" dictator?

From: Mussolini Also Did A Lot of Good

It explores Mussolini’s racist, colonial, and antisemitic policies and beliefs. It also challenges the dictator’s supposed love for his country and people, and the lays bare the damage that he and Fascist tyranny inflicted upon the nation of Italy.
