Benito Mussolini was born in 1883 in Dovia di Predappio, Italy. Mussolini was kicked out of the party because he supported the fighting involved in World War I. In 1919, he created the Italian Fascist Party. And in 1922 he declared himself dictator, which meant he held all the power in Italy. But, during World War II and his own people killed him, on April 28, 1945, in Mezzegra, Italy.
They threatened world peace and became an important factor of the outbreak of the WW2. Fascism and Nazism have many things similar, however, there are also some considerable differences between them. Concerning the background, both Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany rose because people were discontented with the weak democratic governments at that time and strongly felt the Paris Peace Settlement unfair. Italians were not satisfied with the limited reward granted to them after the WW1 compared to their huge contribution (i.e. the Italian government had made huge military expenditure and the total cost of the war is 148,000 million lire, twice more than the total sum expenditure of all Italian government for 1861 to 1913) (Lee, 2000).
The third reason why Germany caused World War 1 is because Germany had the opportunity to start a war that would gain them land. Germany was an industrial powerhouse, and once again Document C shows that Germany had the most money to spend on armies and navies. With Germany spending approximately 115 million British pounds, exceeding Russia 's 90 million British points spent on armaments, it can be inferred that Germany took this opportunity to start a war. Germany knew that a war would help them gain land and remove their burden. Using Austria-Hungary 's war, Germany definitely had the opportunity to side with Austria-Hungary and obtain Russia to relieve their burden.
By late 1921 the group had controlled a large part of Italy but left during postwar years due to a collapse in the nation. In 1922 Mussolini finally gained partial control over the party and used it to his power, he declared that the government needed to prevent the general strike or else the Fascists would and in fact some volunteers of the party did help to prevent the strike. Mussolini had gotten “evil” and used the group's power to his advantage, during
WW1 was a terrible war between the central powers; Germany, Austria-Hungary and Ottoman Empire against the allied powers; Great Britain, France, Russia and later joined by the U.S. and Italy. The main reason why all the countries got irate at each other was because of the death of Archduke Franz Ferdinand the heir to Austria’s throne. But overall the main causes of WW1 were either Militarism, Alliances, Imperialism or Nationalism. I strongly believe that the cause that had the biggest impact on WW1 was Imperialism. My first reason on why Imperialism was the main cause of WW1 was because of geographic purposes.
This feeling radiates though the leadership of the country and can be a causing factor of hostilities between nations. This on its own could not create a war as large as ww1, simply the world was set and staged for war and at the core nationalism was degrading the foundations of peace. Militarism, a competition between countries as to who has the largest military was a large factor in the scale of the war and the lives lost. Years prior to the war there was a steady growth in the military strength of all European nations especially those who were involved in ww1 and neighboring one another. As combinations of militarism and nationalism creates a deadly tinder pile ready for a spark.
According to (Doc 7), Napoleon “considered himself entitled to strip all of his conquered Italian territories of their cultural and artistic treasures.” Napoleon is taking Italy’s way of life and more or less declaring them as Frenchmen with this conquer. He says “Rome is no longer Rome. The whole of Rome is in Paris.” Napoleon removed their right to remain Italians, which is the equivalent of removing their freedom all together.
In 1775, the American colonies won the Revolutionary war against Great Britain. The war resulted in America’s independence from Britain and contributed to major fundamental changes in American history. The Americans had a number of advantages that helped them win the war against Britain, however they also faced tremendous difficulty prior to winning the war. To begin, the Americans were outnumbered against a professional, fully equipped army of 50,000 British troops. Unlike the British army, the American army consisted of 20,000 inexperienced troops and faced desperate shortages of firearm, uniforms, and food.
He also wrote many articles and books, clarifying the basic ideas of fascism.”“Benito Mussolini coined the term “fascism” in 1919 to describe his political movement.” There was also a symbol for fascism. “ He adopted the ancient Roman fasces as his symbol. This was a bundle of rods tied around an ax, which represented the power of Rome.”“Mussolini inspired others to develop their own versions of fascism. When Hitler gained power in Germany in 1933, he added the idea of an Aryan “master race” to his fascist state.” In 1939, Francisco Franco established the Spanish state with some fascist elements.” Other fascist or fascist-like regimes rose and fell in Japan, Argentina, South Africa, Greece, and Iraq among other countries.” As a result, many people know Mussolini for created the fascist
The Underlying Cause of World War I World War I was the start of a series of battles to come. The countries involved in the war were: the United States, Russia, Italy, Britain, and France allied against Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, Germany, and the Ottoman Empire. World War I lasted four long years, between the years of 1914 to 1918, which was much longer than anyone had expected. During those four years, 20,000,000 people had died. In the late 19th century, the leaders of European thought that creating a balance of power would prevent this occurrence.
A two front war is a war in which fighting takes place in separate fronts. This was a major key to defeating the germans “More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded, but their sacrifice allowed more than 100,000 Soldiers to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, to defeat Adolf Hitler’s crack troops.” (www.army.mil/d-day/) In addition, the Allies and the Axis both knew how important it was to win this war. On D-Day, the Allies arrived and attacked first. The Axis Attacked last. The allie’s powers were the USA, Britain, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Greece, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, and South Africa.
Through the first great war two of the allies, Britain and France while allies in the war held onto their stark rivalry. Britain’s front on the war quickly developed into a stalemate due to Germany’s well developed technology and the Ottoman empire 's vast size and availability to resources. Due to the incorrect prediction that the war would end by 1914 Britain 's prime minister, Asquith decided that expanding the war and thus straining the central powers resources and men would be the correct course of action to end the world war. This secret plan to “strike the underbelly”(Turkey) of the Central Powers began by a dealing between Britain, France and Russia to unite in order to undermine the Ottoman empire. Britain began its influence by using the tool of nationalism, Britain pursued dealings with the Arab populations in 1915 in order to strike a deal in which the Arab populations would open a new
Also according to Source B, Hitler later blamed Mussolini from Italy for forcing him to send forces to the Mediterranean instead of starting Operation Barbarossa in May, which would have prevented the German forces from meeting the unfavourable weather conditions. This is also a result of his overconfidence, instead of blaming himself for going to the Mediterranean, he blamed his allies and got blamed by the generals under him. This internal destruction would lead Hitler’s failure to take over the Soviet
