HITLER'S ITALIAN ALLIES ROYAL ARMED FORCES FASCIST REGIME AND THE WAR OF 1940-1943

  • Price: $22.50  $25.00

Book Type: C

By MacGregor Knox. This book attempts to explain why the Italian armed forces and the Fascist regime were so remarkably ineffective at an activity - war - central to their existence. Military-economic weakness, Mussolini's idelogical fantasies and strategic megalomania, and Hitler's failure in the wider war made Italian defeat inevitable. The book offers an innovative analytical cross section of the Italian war effort, from society and culture, through politics and war production to strategy, operations, and tactics, and demonstrates the extent to which Italian military culture and the blinkered approach of Italy's major industrial enterprise made humiliation inescapable. The result is a striking portrait of the military institutions and regime whose most significan conquest in 1940-43 was a dusty and usless corner of Africa, British Somaliland. The armed forces proved unstable to imagine modern war, much less prepared to fight it. This Book also explains how the resulting disaster resulted in Italian armed forces dissolving prematurely and almost without resistance, excellent study. 216 pp.
