Who were the ‘Black Shirts’? Why were they called so?

Asked by Topperlearning User 23rd July 2015, 3:49 PM
Answered by Expert

Mussolini had formed different groups called ‘Fascios’, meaning groups or bands, which were used by him in order to organise violence against the socialists and communists. They wore black uniforms and therefore were known as the ‘Black Shirts’.
