Today in History
 
In 1936, Benito Mussolini informally united Nazi Germany and fascist Italy during a speech where he referred to a Berlin-Rome "axis" around which "all European States animated by a desire for peace may collaborate on troubles." Though Il Duce wasn't the first to use the term "axis" as a way to speak of the power alliance (Hungarian premier Gyula Gömbös was), his use of the term popularized it, eventually making it the name for the countries fighting against the Allies in World War II. Find out about the message Mussolini left behind in his obelisk that details the way he saw the world.
