Hello,

Benito Mussolini was pretty basically Hitler's. Hitler sought Mussolini as an ally before the war because of their like ideals, so they had a pretty good personal relenship, or so I have read.

After the July 20 plot Hitler showed Mussolini the remains of the building that he was in when the bomb went off.

Also Hitler sent SS Commando Otto Skorzaney to rescure Mussolini from his allied captors. (The Gand Faiscst Council voted to have Mussolini removed from the head of the government, thus he was captured during the rapied allied advance into Italy).

Cheers,
Michael

Hello to all :D; something about.......................................

Hitler and Mussolini in Florence, October 28, 1940.

Hitler's eighth meeting with Mussolini took place in Florence on October 28, 1940, at the Sta. María Novella railway station. It was a typical autumn day, windy and cold. The Führer train, consisting of nine wagons, arrived at exactly 10 in the morning. In Bologna, the Führer had already been informed that three hours earlier Italy had invaded Greece. The Duce was full of enthusiasm and once the train stopped on the platform, he began to lead the band as if he were his director. Hitler leaned out the window with a forced smile and Mussolini greeted him saying "Führer we are on the way, my troops entered victoriously in Greece this morning at six". Hitler was silent and Mussolini added "don't worry in two weeks everything will be over". After a good handshake both dictators attended the waiting room of the station. Later the agenda continued at the Pitti Palace ...............
