The Italian Army 1940-45

At its peak the Italian Army contributed 2.5 million troops to the Axis war effort. In addition to its major role in North Africa, Italy's army invaded, and later bore the main burden of occupying, the Balkan countries. Italy also sent 250,000 men to fight on the Russian Front, In this second book of a three-part study Philip Jowett covers the organisation, uniforms and insignia of the italian troops committed to both the North African campaign, and the often neglected East African fighting of 1940-41, induding the colourful colourful units. Stephen Andrew's meticulcus colour plates illustrate a wide range of uniforms, many of which will be new to most readers.
