Expert Answer:

Mussolini propagated an ideology of ultra-nationalism which manifested itself in the territorial expansion policy of the Fascist regime in Italy. In pursuance of this policy, Mussolini regained the Islands of Rhodes, Dodecanese (which were ceded to Greece) as well as the city of Fiume. He turned Albania into a protectorate of Italy and entered into diplomatic treaties with France and Russia. He attacked and captured Abyssinia in the year 1936 and when the League of Nations took an objection to this, he withdrew Italy’s membership from the League.
