25.07-Quick History

Hello to all. Today same as yesterday I will write only this text. I am lacking inspiration this week to write a text that will satisfy my criteria. I mean I did want to write text about how Mussolini was removed from power by his own council, but i think that this text would be to dry and not fun at all.
