The National Fascist Party was founded in Rome, Italy, in 1922, by Benito Mussolini. In the early 1930s, Adolph Hitler modeled his National Socialist German Workers Party on this organization. In the late 1930s and early 1940s, Italian Fascists allied themselves with the German Nazis and Imperial Japan, to wage war against the Allied Powers, and lost.
1922 to 1941
The Fascists were a political group of fanatical far-right authoritarian Italians, in Post-World War I Italy. The party took control of the Italian government during the 1920s, led by its first and last leader, Benito Mussolini, and established a totalitarian regime in the Mediterranean region.
World War II
During the Second World War, the Fascists instigated several unorthodox plots to turn the war in their favor, involving ambitious sabotage operations, fantastical weapon projects, and development of their own metahumans, all to counter their Allied counterparts such as the Justice Society of America and All-Star Squadron. Most of this effort was made in support of German-directed projects.
The Fascists were dissolved and shattered after Italy was overrun by the Allied powers in 1944. Prominent surviving members of the political, military, and economic leadership of the defeated Fascist government were prosecuted for war crimes.
