Reference Number: NON-ATL-C-0093

Four views of Mussolini's face. In the first he has a full double chin, in the second he is struck by a spear, the third shows steam puffing out of the hole made by the spear and the fourth shows him gazing in chinless alarm into a hand-mirror. Refers to the puncturing of Mussolini's dreams of being Emperor of the Mediterranean and of North Africa, when the Greek army forced Italian troops back, and the British army did the same in Egypt.
