Identify the leader in the picture. Give two examples to state that the leader followed an expansionist policy.
The leader in the picture is Benito Mussolini. He was the leader of the Fascist Party of Italy and later became Italy’s dictator. He occupied the Islands of Rhodes, the Dodecanese and the city of Fiume. He also forcibly captured Abyssinia in 1936. When this led to outrage in the League of Nations, he withdrew Italy’s membership from the League.
