When Hitler first took power in Germany in 1933, he sent a personal message to Mussolini expressing his desire for closer relations with Italy. Hitler admired Mussolini, even keeping a picture of Il Duce (see Chapter 2) on his desk for inspiration. The two dictators first met in Venice in 1934. Mussolini, who was seen as the senior statesman, overshadowed Hitler. Mussolini had tried to read Mein Kampf (see Chapter 2) but found it too boring and never finished it.
The Spanish Republican government, made up of Socialists, fought a civil war from 1936 to 1939 to retain power against the rebellion of Spanish Nationalist forces led by General Francisco Franco, who refused to accept control by the leftists. This civil war essentially became a war between Fascism and Socialism, and other nations became involved. With Italian and German assistance, Franco defeated the Republicans and set up his own fascist-style military dictatorship.
Stalin imposed modernization through terror and force. Millions of people died as a result of famine, deportations, or executions as Stalin single-mindedly pursued his goal.
With the collapse of the U.S. stock market in October 1929, prices, wages, employment, trade, and investment all fell in an ever-deepening spiral, and economic distress became worldwide.
