This is only a brief, and superficial explanation of how Italy became involved in WWII. Basically, it was Italy's expansionist desires under Mussolini that initially got them involved. In order to help facilitate Mussolini's expansion aspirations, Italy signed a mutual-assistance pact with Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, thus forming an alliance known as the Axis powers. Italy then launched attacks against the Albanians, Greeks, and British in North Africa. These attacks didn't go so well for Italy, so their German allies came to the rescue. The Germans then conquered Greece and most of North Africa.
