Illusory Ambitions of Mediterranean Domination of Fascist Italy Abstract: In 1918, Italy acquired real influence in the Danube region and Balkans. The news of an aggressive rearmament by Nazi Germany from 1934 onwards forced Mussolini to seek military agreements in France, Britain, Czechoslovakia, and Poland in order to thwart Hitler’s expansionist ambitions while also maintaining an anti-Soviet equilibrium on the European continent. However, when France and Britain imposed sanctions in response to Fascist Italy’s policy of expansion into Ethiopia, Mussolini was forced to turn to Hitler, embarking upon an alliance with the superior industrial and organisational power of the Third Reich.
