Benito Mussolini

Examines the life, history and leadership of this fascist Italian leader.

Benito Mussolini was the Fascist dictator of Italy from 1922 until 1943. He was very popular for most of the time he was in power, but by the time he was shot by Communists in 1945 he had become very unpopular and his death was welcomed. My goal in this paper is to take a look at his family, his education and how he became so power-hungry that he brought about his own ruin. I also will look at whether he had emotional illnesses and how they might have affected his thinking and craving for power.
