This week our course considers how the end of World War I set the stage for World War II, twenty years later. Almost as soon as the war was over, political movements in Germany, Italy, and elsewhere began to take shape that would propel Europe, and the rest of the world, toward another calamitous war. For this week's discussion spark, read either of the following historical documents from this period: Adolf Hitler's The 25 points: An early Nazi program Benito Mussolini's What Is Fascism? In these documents, Germany's Adolf Hitler and Italy's Benito Mussolini articulate what each viewed as the core beliefs and goals of their fascist political movements. What do you see as the most significant differences between their views and others you have studied or know about? Do you see any similarities between their views and others you have studied or know about? When talking about doctoral movement and party in history, two people will always be included Hitler’s Nazi and Mussolini’S fascists. Hitler and Mussolini expected an immense deal of Hitler's Nazi Germany and Mussolini's Fascist Italy represented two-thirds of the Axis Powers during World War II. Both of these individuals projected a great deal of professional respect for one another, and their collaboration made for arguably one of the most violent imbalances in international power that our history has ever recorded.
