The downfall of Mussolini


New Member
ON THIS DAY IN 1945 Benito Mussolini fled his villa on Lake Garda together with his German bodyguards and leading supporters in an attempt to escape the advancing Allied armies. However, he was captured by Italian partisans on the 27th of April and shot next day alongside his young lover, Claretta Petacci. The Communists claimed that a mysterious fighter known as Colonel Valerio had pulled the trigger. But many alternative theories state that secret agents of the British Special Operations Executive (SOE) or the American Office of Strategic Services (OSS) were actually responsible.

This book reveals what really happened. The compelling narrative is enhanced by numerous first-hand accounts and rare contemporary photographs. You can read the whole story in ‘Mussolini, the Last 10 Days, a New Investigation,’ which is available in Kindle from Amazon and in paperback from www.amazon.co.uk or www.emiliapublishing
