Mussolini and his entourage (including mistress Clara Petacci) are shot and killed by a firing squad in Northern Italy after attempting to flee to neutral Swizterland.
The next day their bodies were transported to Milan and hung upside down at a gas station for public viewing. An angry mob of Italian citizens kicked and spit on the remains of the former dictator’s body.
After being deposed and arrested, Benito Mussolini was taken a ski resort in the Apennine Mountains of Italy.
On the personal orders of Hitler, after reconnisance verified Mussolini’s location, German gliders under the order of Otto Skorzeny surrounded the complex and rescued Mussolini without firing a single shot.
