Mussolini: The Churchill Conspiracies claims Il Duce was killed by two British secret service agents acting on direct orders from Winston Churchill. While history says Mussolini and his mistress were shot by Italian partisans, this new account suggests this was a fiction staged hours after Mussolini's actual execution. As revealed here by one of the killers, the true story is one pointing to a cover-up and conspiracy with Winston Churchill at the heart of it.
As the fascist state was collapsing and Mussolini fled the partisans, he always had with him a briefcase filled with his secret correspondence with Churchill. He described these letters as vital to Italy's future. As the war was winding down, Churchill was desperate to silence Mussolini and retrieve these letters knowing they contained damning revelations such as these: -Churchill had tried to arrange a separate peace with Italy, offering Mussolini land for peace - French land, not territory controlled by the British! -Before the start of the war, Churchill had attempted through Mussolini to form an alliance with Nazi Germany in a common front against the Russians, who Churchill considered the real enemy.
Filled with never before seen footage of the final days of World War II, the film consists of two programs. In The Execution of Mussolini, Bruno Lonati, one of Il Duce's killers, offers a moment by moment account of the actual assassination and the events leading up to it, and The Mussolini-Churchill Secret Correspondence reveals the damning letters that Churchill was desperate to prevent from coming to light.
