Here are the words of the man who led Italy to fascism and aided Hitler during the war, written in early 1944 as it all began to fall apart. A fascinating historical document of first-rate importance, these memoirs come from his personal account (annotated but unaltered) of the events immediately preceding and following the capitulation of the Italian armies and the collapse of his regime. Included as an appendix: the final conversation with the Cardinal of Milan three days before Il Duce's
execution by Italian partisans.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 286-295) and index.
