How did Benito Mussolini rise to power?

While working for various labour organizations in Switzerland, Benito Mussolini made a name for himself as a charismatic personality and a consummate rhetorician.

After returning to Italy, he amassed a large following while working as an editor for the socialist magazine Avanti!.

His political beliefs took a hairpin turn to the right midway through World War I, when he stopped decrying the war effort and began advocating for it.

After World War I he began organizing fasci di combattimento—nationalist paramilitary forces known for wearing black shirts.

These groups began waging campaigns of terrorism and intimidation against Italy’s leftist institutions at his behest.

In 1922 Mussolini and other fascist leaders organized a march on Rome with the intention of forcing the king to yield the government to Mussolini.

It worked, and Mussolini was appointed prime minister that same year.

By 1925 Mussolini had dismantled Italy’s democratic institutions and assumed his role as dictator, adopting the title Il Duce .
