A young man named Benito Mussolini flees from Italy to Switzerland to avoid military service. He deals a lot with socialism, works for unions, writes for socialist newspapers, advocates violently for the end of European monarchies, all that. This gets him into big trouble with the Swiss police. So he gets arrested, returns to Italy, is released, returns to Switzerland, gets arrested again, returns to Italy, finishes his military service after first avoiding it, and then, after a brief stint as a primary school teacher, finally goes back to work. as an aspiring socialist.

His speeches and journalistic skills made him famous among Italian socialists. He was against the war, when Italy colonized Libya in 1910, he rebelled. And he was arrested. Then came World War I and once again he protested Italy's intervention. But then he thought, "Wait a minute." "This war could provoke the social unrest necessary to overthrow European monarchies and spark a socialist revolution everywhere." And suddenly he was in favor of the war. But his fellow socialists didn't like his new pro-war stance, so they expelled him from the


y. Then he said: "You know what? I'm done with socialism. We need something new.

Not based on the class divisions that separate us, but based on unity through nationalism. Let's contest the Mediterranean and reunite." all the Italian people, like in the days of the Roman Empire, I will call it "fascism" and it will lead the Italian nation to greatness." "She was fine, Mr. Mussolini, but what kind of haircut am I going to give her? " "Let's try it with... objective." ♪Cajkovski - Overture of 1812 ♪ Italy was on the winning side in the First World War and they hoped to get a lot out of it, but in the end they got only little.
He felt cheated. Above all, a bad economy and a weak government, the Italian people were understandably unhappy. When Mussolini came and said he could fix everything, his fascist movement got a lot of support and he said, "Make me prime minister." Then he established a dictatorship with himself at the center. So: Germany was on the losing side, and they were absolutely destroyed by the Treaty of Versailles. They wanted to militarize the Rhine, they wanted to reduce their army to only 100,000 men, they couldn't have an air force. , they had to pay the allies a large amount of money that they did not have, and the rule was established that all English.
They had the right to walk through the center of Berlin, to choose the German they wanted and to beat him up. I did the latter, but it helps you understand how the Germans felt. Above all, a bad economy and a weak government meant that when a small, angry young man with a bushy mustache showed up and said he could fix everything, the German people adored him. Hitler was a soldier during World War I and was very patriotic. And no one was angrier than he was at Germany's humiliation. He helped found a political


y and in 1923 attempted to march on Munich with his people.
And then he was arrested. But his popularity grew and grew, and in 1933, the president appointed him chancellor. He believed he was Germany's destined savior and became megalomaniacal and established a dictatorship with himself at the center. Europe had its fascist dictator no. 2. Hitler and Mussolini had many of the same ideas. But the most important thing is that they had the same opponents. And they started leaving. "Can anyone else be your friend? Franko? No? Are you okay?" "Yes, I am" "Who is" It's Japan And they have taken northern China. Let's back up a bit: Japan has isolated itself from the rest of the world for more than 200 years.
Until the Americans came along and said, "You'll trade with us and you'll love it," then the Western powers imposed a series of "Unequal Treaties." Saying that Japan's economy was stagnant. They also did not have natural resources. So they decided to take some. They fought against China to get a sphere of influence over Korea and got a lot of things from China. But then the West said: "Hey! Enough!" And when Japan could not dominate the West. They said, "Okay, I think we'll just go home. Wait a minute! What are you doing?" "Taking advantage of China's weakening of the duke's established sphere of influence." "But I was the one who weakened you" "We know" "And you guys didn't let me take anything" "We know" "That seems unfair." "We don't believe it.
It's okay. See you." Then Japan thought, "Good job!" and went to war with Russia, and surprised everyone by winning. They then annexed Korea completely, but they didn't stop there. In World War I they took the colonies of Germany and the islands of Asia. And then, in an incident that was likely orchestrated by the Japanese military, a bomb blew up a Japanese train in Manchuria, giving them a reason to launch an invasion and seize power. Here's the situation: Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Japan believed they were racially superior. Everyone felt hostile towards the allies and everyone wanted to militarize and take power.
And so they do. Let's start with Germany. Hitler hated the Treaty of Versailles and was now ready to do it. In complete violation of the Treaty, the first Luftwaffe squadrons were deployed, conscription was introduced, and he expanded his army. The allies did nothing. Hitler then withdrew his army to the demilitarized Rhineland and gave orders to withdraw immediately if the Allies appeared. The allies did nothing. With his army strengthened, he could move on to Step 2. He wanted to quickly increase the Aryan population. And for this he needed Lebensraum (Living Space), that is, he had to take over the world.
But for now, much of Europe would do it. And he began to look at his neighbors. The allies finally began to worry, so they implemented a useless diplomatic strategy called Appeasement. And it worked a little bit like: Hitler would say, "I love that thing." And the allies would say, "You can't have that; okay, you can have that, but nothing more." "I love that thing." And repeat. In 1938, Hitler's army entered Austria and took it without any resistance. Boom. This is Germany now. He then asked to be given the Sudetenland, an area of ​​Czechoslovakia with many ethnic Germans.
The Allies held a meeting with Hitler in Munich and said, "Look, we'll give you whatever you want." "WAIT A MINUTE. This meeting is for my territory, shouldn't I come to the meeting too?" "Anyway, we'll give you whatever you want." "Actually?" "Yeah." "How is that?" "Yeah." "That I have to do?" "Just sign this paper promising not to invade the rest of Czechoslovakia." "OK." Then Qemberlin returned home victorious waving the signed part of his letter in the air, declaring the aforementioned crisis, the continuation of World Peace, and we built a statue of Qemberlin in his honor and every day on September 30 we will celebrate Chamberlin Day . "Hitler is invading the rest of Czechoslovakia." "That?" "He is taking over the rest of Czechoslovakia." "Oh.
You're lying to me." "What are you waiting for? I'm Hitler." Not to be left behind, Mussolini also wanted to get into action. He said to himself: "Isn't there such a poorly colonized nation that is so underdeveloped that its people would defend themselves against our tanks with arrows and wooden spears? Oh, right! Fantastic!" And so he achieved it. Italy also wanted control of the entrance to the Adriatic Sea. That's why they occupied Albania. Then, in another incident probably organized by the Japanese, Japanese and Chinese troops opened fire on the Marco Polo Bridge and the Japanese launched another invasion of China.
They invaded through Beijing and Shanghai, and then advanced through the Yangtze Valley to China's then capital, Nanking. It was here that the most horrific and worst atrocities committed by Japan against the Chinese people were seen. In Europe, Germany and Italy made their relations official by signing the Pact of Steel. Hitler then turned his eyes towards Poland and hated the Polish Corridor that divided Germany in two. At this point, Allied really needed to get its foot in the door. And they warned him that the invasion of Poland would mean war. Hitler had plans to continue his advance in the east, but he did not want to be left fighting a war on two fronts.
So, for now he made an alliance with Stalin saying: "How about we both invade Poland and divide it between the two of us? I definitely do not intend to betray you at any time in the future." "You can see it well." This new alliance surprised the West. On September 1, 1939, German troops entered Poland and Britain and France declared war on Germany. The Poles fought hard, but were no match for the two giants who faced each other on both sides. Then came a period known as the "Hypocritical War", where everyone just sat around and didn't do much. The French launched a small invasion at Sara, but abandoned the more defensive positions and after a while decided to simply turn around.
They called it a day. Speaking of France, the French were still very proud of her victory in the First World War. And they don't move much from it. They still used horses, they sent messages on motorcycles instead of using radios, commanders' orders were often very vague, and troops were rarely inspected. They built a defense line along the German border, but did not bother to extend it to the English Channel and did not launch artillery attacks on Germany for fear of retaliation. In a war. They did not want to attack the enemy. And at first, the UK was no better either.
Qemberlin still naively hoped that the war could be ended diplomatically. Instead of bombing, the FAM (Royal Air Force) dropped propaganda leaflets on German cities, which according to one air marshal did nothing more than provide the continent with toilet paper during the war. They also sent 200,000 people to France, while the French mobilized millions. Both Britain and France wanted to avoid a repeat of World War I and also wanted to keep the war as far from home as possible. Then they turned their eyes northward, towards Norway. Neutral Sweden exports iron ore to Germany via neutral Norway. The Allies are then asked if they can stop the export of iron ore to Germany.
But the request was rejected. Then the Soviet Union attacked Finland. So the allies said, "How about we land troops in Norway and move them through Sweden to help your friend Finland? And along the way maybe we'll get control of all your iron fields." But Norway and Sweden still said no. So the UK mined the waters around Norway to stop any transport ships in international waters. and they also attacked a German tank found in the area. Hitler realized what the Allies had in mind and quickly acted to secure his iron supply. He launched an invasion through Denmark to Norway.
The Allies rushed to land troops in ports along the coast, but Germany had taken control of the Norwegian airfields and air superiority decided the battle. The allies had to be attracted. After this somewhat embarrassing failure, Qemberlin resigned. And he was replaced by Winston Churchill, who had a slightly different approach to dealing with the Germans. Hitler's overall strategy was similar to Germany's strategy during World War I. Attack France. defeated France. hit the UK in the process, then hand it over to the Soviet Union and win the war. During the Hypocritical War, the Allies gave Hitler enough time to prepare his forces.
He was now ready to attack. The Allies wanted to send troops to Belgium, but Belgium refused. Even to an extent that did not surpriseNobody, Hitler launched an invasion to surround France's defenses. The Allies rushed into Belgium at full speed to prevent the German invasion from continuing, and it seemed that a repeat of the First World War was looming. But this time, Hitler had a Blitzkrieg trick up his sleeve. As the Germans advanced, they sent thousands of refugees westward, slowing the Allies. Then, in the south, the French had left the Ardennes, an area full of hills and forests, very vulnerable, because they thought it was naturally impenetrable.
Well, the Germans were willing to do everything they had. They tore through 50 percent of the Wehrmacht (German army) and surrounded the Allied armies at the speed of light. The best Allied forces were now trapped. The Germans are pressured from all sides, defeating the best French armies and almost annihilating the British as well. But they desperately managed to escape at the last minute to Dunkirk, on a British civilian ship, and even made a perilous journey to bring their men home. With most of the French forces exhausted, the Germans advanced, took Paris, and France fell. What the Germans could not do in the First World War, Hitler liked this.
Hitler hoped that with the fall of France, the United Kingdom would also lose hope and talk of peace. But very upset, he didn't. And he had to secure the Western Front. So he endeavored to subjugate you with mind games. The United Kingdom was now completely alone and could be used by Hitler. First, once France fell, Italy finally declared war on the Allies. making the situation in the United Kingdom even worse. Furthermore, instead of occupying all of France, Hitler occupied the coastal areas to protect them, but allowed France to exist as a German puppet state. In this way, it seemed that the United Kingdom's old ally decided to change sides.
Hitler also hoped that the United Kingdom would not attack any naval bases or colonies in Africa of its former ally, giving Hitler an additional line of defense in the south. But the United Kingdom was sure to respond by sailing to the French naval base in Algeria and destroying a fleet of ships. Hitler then began making plans for the invasion of Britain. Before German troops could land on British soil, they first had to have sea and air superiority across the Channel. Waves of German bombers arrived, while the FAM, totally outnumbered, worked valiantly around the clock in an attempt to stop the German attacks.
First, the Luftwaffe attacked British ports and coastal installations, then attacked FAM bases, crippling the FAM's ability to defend the nation. And it seemed that Hitler's great invasion of Britain was approaching. But then Kerçilli ordered a very insignificant small bombing raid on Berlin. It did not cause much damage, but Hitler was furious and immediately ordered the Luftwaffe to reorient its attacks against civilian targets in London. The children were sent across the country, away from their parents, to avoid danger. and frequent trips to bomb shelters became an everyday occurrence. But British morale remained firm. Smiling, knitting, casually lounging, these men had balls of steel.
This refocusing on Loder also gave the FAM breathing room to reorganize. So Hitler more or less shot himself in the foot. For now only one leg. Eventually, the Luftwaffe launched a massive all-out attack on London and the FAM successfully stopped it, destroying many German aircraft and putting air superiority firmly in British hands. Hitler's invasion had to stop, but the bombing of British cities continued for some time.
