The Italian Army in World War II : Europe, 1940-43 v. 1, Paperback Book

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.
