20 Gooch, John Mussolini and His Generals: The Armed Forces and Fascist Foreign Policy, 1922-1940
Cambridge Cambridge University Press 2007 0521856027 / 9780521856027 BCE Hard Cover Fine DJ Fine Thick Large Octavo 
"Scholars have attempted to explain Fascist Italy's foreign and military policies in isolation from one another. But Benito Mussolini dominated both, and the Duce of Fascism was no split personality. John Gooch's pioneering study covers both key aspects of Fascist policy on the basis of extensive research in the difficult-of-access archives of the armed forces and foreign ministry. The result is an unprecedented achievement: a meticulous account that ties together diplomacy, deployment planning, the organizational agendas and force structures of the three services, and the dictator's often bizarre policy inspirations." - MacGregor Knox, The London School of Economics and Political Science. 666pp.
