So, what did happen to Benito Mussolini?

The Italian Fascist dictator fled his villa on Lake Garda together with his leading supporters and German bodyguards on the 18th of April 1945 in an attempt to escape the advancing Allied armies. He was captured in Dongo on Lake Como on the 27th and shot next day alongside his young lover, Claretta Petacci. The Communists claimed that a mysterious partisan known as Colonel Valerio had pulled the trigger. But many alternative theories state that secret agents from the British Special Operations Executive (SOE) or the American Office of Strategic Services (OSS) were responsible. Using secret wartime reports from the United Kingdom and the United States, Italian records, and first-hand accounts, the author reveals what really happened, solving one of the greatest mysteries of the Second World War. You can find the eBook in Kindle from Amazon sites worldwide and in paperback from www.amazon.co.uk and www.emiliapublishing.com
