I would recognise that goatee anywhere. That's Italo Balbo, the only man in Mussolini's regime who dared to stand up to him.

As there has not been any new question posted for nearly 12 months(!!), I'll post a question.

What was the name given to the proposed plan to assassinate Adolf Hitler if Germany went to war with Czechoslovakia over the Sudetenland?

pb,

Correct. The Septemberverschwörung is also known as the Oster Conspiracy.

Your turn to ask a question.

"Shortly after WWI" would mean intervention in north Russia. That was the only "action" I can think of involving the US after the war ended. It is a guess, but that is my guess. :wink:

hi,

OK, as there's no answer, the solution: transatlantic flight of USN aircraft NC-4 in May, 1919

the thread is open for the next question.
