How did you overcome italy’s logistical issues? In otl Italy had the largest fleet in the Mediterranean and a pretty modern Air Force but no oil for either. Libya had oilf but lacked the technology to detect or drill it. Much of the drilling tech was invented by Howard Hughes’s father. So to extract this oil does Mussolini somehow engage in a partnership with America the largest oil producer at the time, or with Hughes?
Can Mussolini crown himself as Augustus or King since he would be very popular here? Fascism is notoriously unstable especially in regards to succession unlike a hereditary monarchy. Plus the title of king or emperor grants Mussolini legitimacy rather than being A military dictator. Albeit his power is derived in more of a Napoleonic fashion if he crowns himself. How does the Italian army beat the German army? Prussia’s army was inherited by Hitler which was very professionalized and probably the most well trained fighting force during the War. This only changed after he invaded Russia where his logistics and manpower were drained in Russia. If Mussolini got the oil from Libya why doesn’t he sell some to Germany to make a huge profit while staying neutral? Maybe German officers help modernize and train the Italian army.
1) I’m confused by your question. The Italian fleet has barely been in service and the country is fighting into its logistical centre, not to mention it has full access to world markets.
2) The oil has not been extracted yet.
3) Mussolini will not do something that will needlessly offend the Conservative elite he needs to keep power by making such an obvious challenge to the king.
4) The Italians beat the Germans because they were cooperating with multiple countries, fighting on home turf, had an opponent overwhelmed on countless fronts, a German war plan devoted to murdering Jews rather than gaining military victory and a fresh but experienced army. Mussolini didn’t sell Libyan oil to Hitler because he had none but he did commerce with Hitler until the end. He exited neutrality because Hitler attacked him.
