Additional Information

With his signature insight and compelling style, Christopher Hibbert explains the extraordinary complexities and contradictions that characterized Benito Mussolini. Mussolini was born on a Sunday afternoon in 1883 in a village in central Italy. On a Saturday afternoon in 1945 he was shot by Communist partisans on the shores of Lake Como. In the sixty-two years in between those two fateful afternoons Mussolini lived one of the most dramatic lives in modern history. Hibbert traces Mussolini's unstoppable rise to power and details the nuances of his facist ideology. This book examines Mussolini's legacy and reveals why he continues to be both revered and reviled by the Italian people.

Probably the best book on Mussolini and Facist Italy I have ever read. The author's style and pace are excellent ( for me ) and he makes Mussolini seem like a real, flesh and blood, here and now kind of figure. Familiar historical information was presented in a way that made much of it more relevant to Mussolini's era. This is a book that will stay in my reference library and one that I will reccomend to those looking for a first rate book on a most interesting dictator. Should be a must read for anyone interested in WWII personalties. Joe Turner
I have read other books by Hibbert, and he is great in all of them. Somehow he makes the famous seem personal, and wonderful footnotes. Anyone wanting to understand more about Fascism and/or Mussolini should read this book.
The book is easy to get into. The author makes it very enjoyable and yet filled with facts and enough details to make it count as a historical work . I am still reading it and finding it to be very enjoyable. .
