Benito Mussolini was the leader of Socialist Italy, which was an not an Ally to Nazi Germany until Germany scared them into it.

The Italian military was beautifully dressed and had wonderfull parades, but were terrible soldiers, and gave up in the hundreds of thousands when faced by a modern enemey force. They folded up like a cheap suit, and the Germans never trusted them to hold any position for more than an hour. The only time the Italians fought well was when they had Germans behind them, pointing their guns at them.

Mussolini was a minor player in the actual conflict of WWII, but is probably best known as the one Axis leader who tried to start the war.

Answer

Mussolini was the dictator of Italy until 1943.

He was bellicose in trying to expand Italy's world presence. Before the official beginning of WWII in Sept 1939 he had already sent forces to capture Albania and Ethiopia. Lacking the strength of Germany, he decided to tag along with German victories, thus involving Italy in wars with France, Britain and Greece in 1940 and 41.

His several initiatives were without exception, disasters. His armed forces were inadequate for the various tasks put before them. The Italian economy was weak and inefficient from the start. Italy had basically withdrawn from active military involvement when in 1943 there was a popular uprising against Mussolini.

German leaders had wisely predicted such a turn of events and moved quickly, expertly and efficiently to disarm the Italian armed forces before they could be used by the new Italian government to attack Germany. In one of the most brilliant commando attacks of the war German units even raided the complex where Mussolini was being help captive and freed him.

Mussolini thus became a mere figurehead for the remainder of the war, having neither a military nor any political power. Near the end of the war in 1945 he was captured again by Italian partisans who murdered him and his mistress and then strung their mutilated bodies upside down in a north Italian town plaza.

The Mussolini name lives on in Italy and members of his extended family are still active in politics today.

Mussolini in WW2

Benito Mussolini was the leader of fascist Italy. He played an important role in World War 2. See the link to the right for information on him.

Answer

He paid a little role he had alliance with Germany. The Italy was raging war against Britain in North African and they were not winning and the reason the Germans sent troops to North Africa because Italy was losing. The battle of France was started and Italy attacked southern France after the French army was in retreat. Italy had submarines that helped a little bit to destroy merchant shipping. There nearly was almost gone by the end of 1943. So in conclusion they had a very small effect.


Got owned by the Allies and din't help all too much. In fact, historians speculate that if Germany hadn't had to have delayed their advance into Russia to help out the Italians, they would have reached and taken Moscow before winter, therefore not freezing their arses off and dying. Thius would have really turned the tables in the war and maybe i'd be writing this all in German right now.
Mussolini was sort of a supporting character in WW 2. He doesn't accomplish many feats except for taking over a colony in Africa (which was Ethiopia, as vengence for their loss during an earlier time period when Italy tried to colonize them but failed miserably) and supporting the Germans in Africa. His leadership leads to the downfall of fascist Italy and he tries to escape by disguising himself as a soldier. He is shot/executed and he is hung on public display.
He was the leader of Italy
He was the dictator of Italy, and helped the Axis Powers throughout the World War II.

Benito Mussolini had taken over as dictator of Italy in 1922. He lead the country into war against countries in North Africa which lead to the Germans sending troops in their support to fight the British in 1941. Mussolini was forced to resign in July 1943 and the Italians surrendered. However, the Germans 'rescued' Mussolini and placed him as a puppet ruler over the Italian Fascists who sided with the Germans.

After being dinied the land promised at the end of WWI, ITaly became mad at the Allies. Looking for a strong leader, they had Benito Mussolini (Italian dictator) run the government. When WWII broke out, Italy joined Germany and Japan so that if they won, they would get a share of Europe.

In the long and violent rule of Benito Mussolini as "il duce" (or, the leader) of Italy in the early 20th century, propaganda played a very important role. Through newspapers and radio broadcasts, through public displays and building projects, and much more, Mussolini's administration enforced its will -- and its viewpoint -- upon Italians through systematic use of propaganda of all sorts.

NGO's play a very important role as they play a parallel role to governments of the world as they are organizations that help humanity. They advance causes like human rights, poverty, income inequality, hunger, food preservation, and water safety. They are as essential as the world's individual governments.
