To be honest they did things but they might have not been good, seeing your point of view of the war.

They took Albania....

Benito had an idea to remake the roman empire as he attacked north Africa to get lands there, he kinda failed. British held him back. Germany had to step in and help. Same happend to Greece. They came in. Lost a bit. Greece even took some ground from Albania if I'm correct. Germany had to step in and attacked the whole Balkan peninsula. After that I Germany was in war with Russia and Italy sent some help but I'm not sure if he was more of an advantage or a burden to Germany's plans.

Also in the end Mussolini wanted to start a guerrilla war in the alps with 3000 men. Only about a dozen came to answer his call to arms.

They took Albania, which wasn't heavily defended and was in disarray to begin with, and then got their asses kicked by Greece who were inferior in both number and technologic advancements, driving Italian forces out of the area and even, yes, as you said, taking a part of Albania.

I'm not 100% sure about this but I think pretty much the same thing happened to Italy in the south, in Africa. Both times Germany had to rush to its' help.

Benito Mussolini started out working in the propaganda department, and he had a talent for propaganda; however, I think as a military leader he was rather uncapable (especially when comparing him to Hitler).

Shouldn't Britain be like America's father instead of his cousin?

Hmm I just finished studying Germany during the Nazi rule. To be honest, he hated Communists and the Jewish people the most and persecuted them more earlier on. For example during The Night of Broken Glass event for the Jews and the Reichstag Fire being blamed on a Jewish Communist although it is unlikely he was actually to blame. Also, he didn't hate women at all, quite the contrary actually- he believed them to be the baby makers, who would raise his army to be strong. The Cross of Honor of the German Mother was awarded to some women. He did oppose and persecute homosexuals and those with disabilities later on but I don't know enough in that area to comment any more about it.

Hitler actually did not really hate the afro-german populace allowing to to keep whatever jobs they had and was even able to join the german army.

We didn't study that area for some reason, that's interesting to know though.
