Laugh even more maniacally on American Democratic Southern Populism to the point that he is running out of air
Laughs even more maniacally in German ultranationalist
Laughs so maniacally that the power of spoiler warnings are summoned to prevent the specific American dialect that is critical to the plot of Man-Made Hell from being decipheredLaugh even more maniacally on American Democratic Southern Populism to the point that he is running out of air
Quits laughing and comes to the realization that a Man-Made Hell DBWI interlude could be funLaughs even more maniacally then previously thought possible, to the point where they forgot what they were even laughing about .... then they started dreaming about Fuhrerreich!
Fascism just grows from becoming the party of interventionists ITTL, and benefits from gaining members from Italian socialist parties in Italy due to a sort of "Italian Red Scare." I can see where you're coming from, but in my opinion Mussolini would probably be able to build up support by using the events ITTL to his advantage.SOrry, but no sorry, the possibility that Benny can get in power in Italy without her actively fought for 4 years a bloody war and the economy in shambles, without the humiliation of Wilson and Versailles it's just statistical, even because a lot of earlier fascist forces come from the Arditi and veterans that ITTL don't exist...the king in this scenario will simply crush Del Bono or more simply the socialist head of goverment will order the police or/and the army to do it even if for some reason VEIII decide to make Benny presidente del consiglio he will never ever the kind of power that had in OTL (and that was a lot less than Franco, Hitler and Stalin).
Basically the rise of the PFI ITTL will lack all OTL economic situation and social pressure due to Italy remaining neutral (plus gaining something without the need to fight) and even OTL at the beginning Mussolini needed a lot of the liberal enstablishment support to govern and win the election.
Maybe the communist revolution start something in Italy but even ITTL for the march of Rome you have needed 4 years from the end of the war and the 'biennio rosso'.

Personally, I think it would have been possible for Mussolini to consolidate power through different circumstances, however, for the time being does have a handful of liberal allies. It's more socialist groups that he is going after.Support? Sure, almost assured...he can become the dictator of Italy with an analog of the orginal March on Rome? Sorry, no way, or at least he will be too dependent of the King and the rest of the liberal entablishment even more than OTL to be nothing more than a strong head of goverment
Ooh, I never heard about that, so thanks for mentioning that! The egalitarian nature of communism means that women will be permitted to fight on behalf of the Comintern's members, and the Entente has reached a point where they need every soldier they can get, so I can definitely see both Great Britain and France introducing limited female drafts. With that being said, the British have yet to give women the right to vote, so it might not be a good idea to draft a large amount of your population that is not permitted to vote and has become a significant part of the workforce, especially when your enemy adheres to an egalitarian populist ideology.The casualties of OTL WW1 forced the various factions to begin enlisting women into the workforce in order to keep the war going. How much more along is that process as of the end of phase 1 (and if its not too spoilery, how will that process end up changing the societies of the combatants by the end of the war)?
