The Flying Corporals by John Demmery Green
August, 1941: on an official state flight to visit the Eastern Front, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini unnerves his host and fellow dictator Adolf Hitler by insisting on taking to the controls and flying the plane himself. With the pilot dismissed to the cabin, the two "iron men" of Europe have an awkward, chilling, and darkly humorous conversation about history, war, the future, and just why Mussolini is feeling so depressed. Based (closely) on true events.
