Italian Field Marshal. Becoming Governor General of Libya, Governor of Italian Somalia and Deputy Governor of Cyrenaica in the Second World War, he was defeated by the British Army in 1941 and was replaced by Benito Mussolini. In 1944, Graziani accepted the post of Minister of War in the newly formed "Republic of SalÚ" (Italian Social Republic), post he held until the final defeat in 1945. On April 29, 1945, General Graziani surrendered to the Allies, and after a period of detention as war prisoner in Algeria, he was tried and sentenced to nineteen years in prison but remained in prison just three years. The judges ruled that he had not had responsibilities in the decisions of the Government of Italian Social Republic. He was inducted in the United Nation list of war criminals for the use of poison gas and bombing of the Red Cross's hospitals, but was never prosecuted for that. After the war he entered in politics life of post war but after some years he retired to private life. He died of natural causes at his home in Affile not far away from Rome. (bio by: Ruggero)
