Mussolini decided to act before the Germans won the war without any Italian participation. 8 Renzo De Felice, Mussolini’s biographer, writes: ‘Nobody made objections. ’9 Italy entered the Second World War without clear objectives, without adequate preparation and without honour. On 10 June 1940 Italy declared war on the Allies, an act which the French President, Paul Reynaud, described in a broadcast as ‘a stab in the back’ and others in even less complimentary similes. The fortnight of hostilities added to Italian embarrassment.
