A sufficient overview of Mussolini's life and time in power. Like other books from the 'history in an hour' series it is brief and to the point. If you are searching for detailed academic discussion and evaluation, you will not find it here, it is merely a factual overview, which acts as a sufficient text if you are not acquainted with the topic or want to revisit the events discussed.

Quick read... Good information.

I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of info in such a short tome. Lots of facts and trivia in a mix that keeps it from being dry and enough to make it informative in a serious way. Well worth the price and more than enough info to form an independent opinion of the man. Also... Enough info to see parallels to some very recent events.
