Remembering World War I in Delaware: The Sunday Star Examines Italy’s Entrance into the War.

The Sunday Star of late June, 1915 covers a wide array of topics, from dissent in the Women’s Suffrage movement to Mexico to the European Conflict. An interesting study of the cause and effect of Italy going to war is provided. Italian Prime Minister Giovanni Giolitti personally opposed Italy going to war. Giolitti was a shrewd politician who championed centrist policies. A progressive, he opposed extreme political groups and was opposed to the rise of Fascism in Italy after the war came to a close. Only Benito Mussolini served longer as Italian Prime Minister than Giolitti.

Delaware Soldiers honored today are Alexander Dellin, William Cox, Herman Franklin Gingrich, and Vincenzo Giovannozzi
