Saint-Marie Assassination AttemptEdit
In 1940, while touring the occupied French city of Saint-Marie with Adolf Hitler, Mussolini was shot in the left hand in an assassination attempt on himself and Hitler by Pierre LeMieux. Historians speculate as to why he was there, noting that it did not enhance the event and that few observers even knew who he was; the general theory is that he was shoehorned into the event simply because of the convienience of it. Subsequent to the shooting, he made a full recovery.
