Real History: Hitler Met Mussolini On This Day In 1940

One of my favorite information sources is the almanac maintained by the local public radio station, KALW, in San Francisco.  You never know what to expect from the mind of editor, Joe Burke. Of note today is a 1940 meeting of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini that took place in the Brenner Pass. During the meeting Mussolini agreed to join Hitler in his war against France and Great Britain that had begun six months earlier.

There is surprisingly good footage of this historic meeting. Any similarity between this footage and the contemporary political scene in the United States is purely coincidental.
