Notes
Content: Picture caption: "Der nächste Schlag gegen die Demokratien war das Zusammentreffen des Führers mit dem Duce am Brenner. Eine zweieinhalbstundige Unterredung zwischen den beiden befreundeten Staatsmännern genügte, um das ganze Welt in Aufregung zu versetzen."
Content: Axis propaganda portrayed Mussolini and Hitler as having equal status as statesmen, but by this time, the Führer's diplomatic and military successes had far eclipsed those of the Duce, making him the alliance's senior partner.
