His Mother was an elementary school teacher (MacGregor p18). As a child, Mussolini was disobedient and violent. He had a passion for politics from his father and was expelled from many schools (Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini). At the age of nine, his mother was able to have him attend boarding school in Faenza. It was at Faenza when Mussolini learned of differences between the classes.
Hitler was furious with Germany’s surrender in World War I, so when he got back to his home in Munich, he was determined to enter politics and become the greatest leader in German history (Smith). He spent all of his time and effort trying to become the chancellor of Germany. Once he was voted into being chancellor, he needed a way to become the leader of all of Germany. Hitler gathered power through many acts of t... ... middle of paper ... ...ath taking in more way then anyone could ever explain in good and bad ways. On the other hand there is Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler’s ally during World War II.
His tactics were made to give him more control over the country. These tactics were, police terror, brainwashing, persecution, and propaganda. In the beginning, Mussolini was considered the best in everything, the country be... ... middle of paper ... ...nel Valerio. After many years of excel, this man laid dead, a martyr, a hard worker, and a traitor. As you can see Mussolini was one of the greatest men in the Italian history, he made a huge difference in the past and the future, with his great ideas and propagandas that he gave to the Italian government and the people.
He wasn’t in total power like before, but only because the German Commuter was over him now. When the troops from Italy came close to where Mussolini was, he ran to Switzerland. He thought he was safe; however, he was captured and killed by his own people. Mussolini started as a hopeless youth; eventually, he grew into an eager young man who dreamed of politics. He studied and learned everything he thought he needed to make it into politics.
The Socialists did splendidly, but Fascism, having not yet fully identified with the conservative Right, seemed in 1919 to have arrived at a dead end" (Forman 27). The fear that was created between government official and citizen was what kept Fascism in power after this initial downfall. Many of the Fascists in power were out of control; Even Benito Mussolini had his own Fascist propaganda army: the Blackshirts , or "Squadre". Fear was building as ... ... middle of paper ... ...ter Fascism's decline Italy embarked on a long rebuilding journey. No matter how hard Italy tries to forget Fascism, it will always leave an everlasting mark on society there, and it will go down in history as the most infamous system of government to ever be conceived.
He was the top of his class growing up, but he wasn’t quite a model student - he hated rich children and was almost expelled for stabbing one with a knife. This seems to be the first hint of a very violent future for Mussolini. As a young man, Mussolini worked as a union organizer and was expelled from Switzerland and Austria for Socialist agitation. He was a very talented writer; he wrote poems and a novel, The Cardinal’s Mistress, and edited a newspaper, Avanti. After WWI, in 1922, Mussolini organized a March on Rome with 26,000 followers.
