"The keystone of the Fascist doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For Fascism the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative."
- Mussolini, The Doctrine of Fascism
This documentary on Mussolini and his rise, his warring and relationship with Germany, and his turning on loyal fascists in his own party, to include his son-in-law, is fascinating. The western Allies appeased the rise of the Axis, thinking it couldn't possibly be as bad as some made it out to be.
This is an interesting look at military history with actual footage from the time.
