MUSSOLINI, Benito (1883-1945) Prime Minister of Italy and dictator of fascist regime. In 1940-1941 Mussolini's armies, badly supplied and impossibly led, strung their defeats from Europe across the Mediterranean to the African continent. These defeats constituted the full measure of Mussolini's bankruptcy. Italy lost its war in 1942; Mussolini collapsed 6 months later. Restored as Hitler's puppet in northern Italy in 1943, he drove Italy deeper into the tragedy of invasion, occupation, and civil war during 1944-1945. Mussolini died before a partisan firing squad on April 28, 1945, at Dongo in the Como province. Document Signed, "Mussolini" on 4pp document with heading Commissione Supremadi Difesa, July 27, 1927, dark signature. Document concerns the inefficiency in securing contracts from foreign suppliers ... mention machine guns. Comes with full translation
