I became one of the founders of Fascism in Italy and I was credited for it. As power rose right at my fingertips, I became the leader of the National Fascist Party then, the Prime Minister of Italy. You may wonder, “How does he become Prime Minster of Italy?” Well, on the month of October 27th -29th of 1922, I lead my Fascist Party to a march into Rome to overthrow the Prime Minister, King Victor Emmanuel III. On October 28th, we reached Rome and sadly, he refused to hand the power over to me. To overthrow him, the military, the business class, and the liberal right wing supported me all the way. For years of being Prime Minister, I began a foreign policy to shift my country from a pacifist anti imperialism to nationalism and taking over the Mediterranean. We also wanted the country Ethiopia, so I set my country for an invasion. My military forces were far superior to the Abyssinian forces, especially in air forces and were soon declared victors. The cowardice of the Emperor, Haile Selassie, was forced to flee the country, while my country was entering the capital, Addis Ababa, to claim an Empire by May 1936 making Ethiopia part of the Italian East Africa.

The Fascist government turned against me, and arrested me then for the loss in war. I was waiting for my death sentence while they replaced me with a new leader, Pietro Badoglio. Two months later on September 13th, 1943 I was rescued by German Special Forces to lead Northern Italy during war. After leading and was under the control of Hitler, it was time for me to escape from the people that arrested me. So I tempted and escape to Spain while these scoundrels of the communist party caught me and my mistress, Clara Petacci. We were both arrested and waited for our death sentence. The war was over, the Americans won.

I impacted America by being in World War II in the first place where my country was allied with Germany, also creating the first Fascist government in Italy.
