Rome-Berlin Axis


a military and political alliance between fascist Germany and Italy, formalized by the Berlin Agreement of Oct. 25, 1936.

The creation of the axis attested to the open preparation of the fascist states for the unleashing of World War II. The Anti-Comintern Pact signed by Germany and Japan on Nov. 25, 1936, was a continuation of the Rome-Berlin Axis; Italy joined on Nov. 6, 1937.
