The Italian Army in World War II : Europe, 1940-43 v. 1 Paperback
Illustrated by Stephen Andrew
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
At its peak the Italian Army contributed 2.5 million troops to the Axis war effort of World War II (1939-1945).
English-speaking readers tend to think of this army in terms of the North African campaign; but far more Italian troops served in other theatres.
They invaded, and later bore the major burden of occupying, the Balkan countries; and Italy sent 250,000 troops to fight on the Russian Front.
In this, the first of a three-part study, Philip Jowett covers the European theatre - including Russia - from 1940 to Italy's armistice with the Allies in 1943.
Many interesting uniforms, a number of them new to most readers, are meticulously illustrated by Stephen Andrew.
