So no, the Italian state existed and was recognised (even by Germany).
1) Italy never declared any war on Republican Spain in 1936. Officially, the Italians that fought against the legitimate Republican government, together with Franco's rebels, were "volunteers".
2) In 1943, the Kingdom of Italy declared war on Germany. And, technically speaking, it wasn't a "puppet state": it was the legitimate Italian government, ruled by the king. As a professor of Contemporary History at the university, I quite know this subject... ;-)
It's quite an interesting story!
Is it possible to accept that? Thanks
If we want to talk about countries Italy has been at war with, then go ahead by all means. But that isn't what this quiz is.
- Ethiopia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italo-Ethiopian_War_of_1887%E2%80%931889
Spain: Italy supported Spain's Fascist government in the Spanish Civil war, and warred the republican govt.
Albania: Shortly before WWII, Italy annexed Albania.
USSR: Italy declared war on the USSR around when Germany did I think
Greece: Italy's imperial ambitions lead them to invade Greece (And for like the millionth time in the war, they only won with Germany's help.)
Liechtenstein: Their army literally had 80 men. I don't know why they fought but they did.
Please do some research before posting comments.
Italy: TiME tO deCLaRe WAr oN 80 PEoPLe in LiECHteNstEIn!!!
I know that Canada made its own declarations of war in WWII, unlike in WWI when its dominion status meant that they were automatically at war with anybody upon whom the UK declared war. I imagine it's a similar case for Australia and New Zealand. Were these declarations never reciprocated by Italy?
