I would choice RSI for redeeming the honour of Italy and because reneging the alliance with Germany when Italy is invaded by the enemy would be the wrong thing to do .
Also most probably I would have been a Fascist and betray my faith and friends then would not be an option .

Yours

No doubt, I would surely joined RSI forces even if I don't like Germany as ally...

RSI for the simple reason that it would probably allow me to do more to try to curb the Germans (at least to keep my family safe). I would never join the partisans because they opened themselves and others up to punishment and they were really militarily insignificant (despite what the Italian left would like you to think)

RSI. I would have fought for Italy's honor and have been glad to die protecting it.

Althoguh my grandfather decided to fight as a partisan( not only during the facts of april 1945, like a lot of false partisans, he started fighting soon after the Armistice), I would have choosen RSI's side.
This because of an idea of protection of the honour, first of all.
Living near Milan, there could also be a problem of protecting my family, as others said. This one is not the main reson.

Damn, we actually agree?! :shock:

Yeah, the King would have had my allegiance too!

I could not have sat idle during this time so I wouldve had to pick sides. I picked the RSI because I wouldve wanted to defend the Honor of Italy and protect N. Italy from the German occupying force. While I still have alot of loyalty to the King, It wouldve been a cold day in hell, before I pledged alligance to Pietro Badglio. Its because of people like him that Italians are called side switchers.

RSI. How could I follow I puppet Badoglio and a fleeing king.

Several people, even nonfascist, took even ministires during that time, even people who critized Mussolini!

So if they did to defend the honor of their country I would do so as well...

He was? I allways thought that the King appointed Mussolini to form a government after the March to Rome and all that...

Being a democrat to the core it feels strange for my to say this, but I must admit that I would follow my King (or Queen, being a Dane and all) more or less anywhere and against anyone. Governments make mistakes (the Danish one in 40 collaborated with the Germans fx), but to me Kings and Queens represents something larger than that!

Best regards to you all!

The people wanted so, and he was voted in 1925, I think.

Yes... You are Dane, you would follow your king... naturally... but you have never been under the King of Italy and under "la casa Savoia"... otherwise ... RSI :) thats for sure :)

I couldnt agree more with that. Nothing in this world would make me follow Badaglio, and while I still have loyalty to the King, he shouldve stayed in Rome and protested the German occupation. He should have never have fled.

Too true! If the king had stood firm and picked someone with guts to rule Italy the Germans may not have overrun Italy so easily....Badoglio was a gutless chancer with only his best interests at heart!

And the sad thing is the History books hold him as an Italian hero. One book calls him a great Anti_fascist. HE sure seemed to be fascist when he was governer of East Africa. He chose political beliefs of what was best for him. Switching from Fascist to non fascist when necessary. The real Italian heroes are the ones who didnt disgrace their country and uniforms by surrendering, and instead chose to fight on.
