Eight country-by-country accounts of the origins of the Second World War written and narrated by Charles Wheeler. 4: Italy
Benito Mussolini has been described as the most popular leader Italy has ever had. He invented Fascism; after the First World War his regime brought the country stability and inspired dreams of a resurgent Italy, worthy of its ancient Roman heritage. But despite Mussolini's claims, his new Italian Empire was fated to collapse. Among those appearing in the programme are two of Mussolini's children: Vittorio Mussolini and Countess Edda Ciano.
