Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “This book sets out to do what no other book has yet done: to tell the full, fascinating, horrifying, sometimes touching story of Mussolini’s last journey — a journey that began with a kind of defiant hope and ended, inevitably, in death. Unlike the death of Hitler, which remains obscure, the last days of Mussolini were witnessed at close range by many people. Through their eyes and their recollections, the author traces the extraordinary events of five dramatic days, when a whole ideology was consumed, as it had been conceived, in violence.”
