"War alone brings up to their highest tension all human energies and imposes the stamp of nobility upon
the peoples who have the courage to make it." -Il Duce, Benito Mussolini

Introduction:
The Mediterranean Sea has always been a crossroads of Empires. The Romans
called it Mare Nostrum, or “Our Sea”. At its height, the Roman Empire controlled virtually all of the land where the
waves of their sea touched shore. Italian nationalists would later revive this term in the 1860s during the drive for the
unification of Italy. However, the term would be most associated in modern times with the Leader of the Italian
Fascists, Benito Mussolini. It was he who cultivated the idea of a grand new Roman Empire with all of the imagery
associated with that Ancient society. The very word Fascist, derived from the Roman symbol of the Fasces (literally
“bundle of sticks”), represented the “strength through unity” of the Italian people that Mussolini desired to cultivate in
his totalitarian regime.

It was he who would build a new Roman Army, often described as his “Eight Million Bayonets”, and then
send it off on dreams of conquest. In fact, the Italian army’s fortunes are intimately linked with that of Mussolini’s. His
rise would see them triumphant. His fall would be their fall. In the end, his death at the hands of his own people
symbolized the way Italy itself succumbed to internal strife and division as the nation tore itself apart during the Allied
invasion. Mussolini’s rule is a true Roman tragedy complete with greed, pride, and fate. His own soldiers would often
perform heroic deeds and fight valiantly for a man laid low by his own hubris, an act that would cost many their lives.

As an army, history has not been kind to the Italians. Their fighting capabilities are often lumped together
with those of the French and Poles in WWII. Yet these characterizations are often not true or fair. These soldiers
could fight, and indeed did fight hard. The individual Italian soldier was tough and brave and yet he was often
equipped poorly, underfed, poorly led, and was supplied by a logistics system that was so inefficient as to be almost
criminal. In every theater the Italian soldier fought there are examples of skill and bravery.

Facing the Ethiopians, the Italians fought well, but since they were facing a small army with virtually no
modern equipment, this was perhaps a forgone conclusion. This prize in Abyssinia would be the first of Mussolini’s
conquests and was perhaps his most successful. Once facing the modern and professional British army, the Italians
would find their match. Mussolini’s pride would lead him to send Italian soldiers into the Spanish Civil War where they
would also fight well, if ultimately unsuccessful when leading their own offensives. While the Spanish Civil War
offered the Italian Army valuable experience and would allow them to test new weapons and tactics, this dirty
ideological war was not the place in the sun that Mussolini had envisioned and in fact would cost him dearly in men
and material that would be badly needed in the coming war.

With the signing of the Pact of Steel between Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy, Mussolini was able to finally
give his soldiers a place to show their mettle. However, things would not start out well for his army. He would be
disappointed when sending his troops into France where they would be stopped cold by the Maginot Line. His force
sent into Russia could only play second fiddle to the massive German invasion of the Soviet Union. To make things
worse, this was after experiencing the embarrassment of having the Germany army enter Greece to end the deadlock
that had developed between the Italians and the ragtag Greek army. This was not an auspicious start for the would
be Legions that were to conquer the New Rome.

It was only after a stunning defeat In North Africa at the hands of the British, that the Italian army would start
to approach something akin to an effective fighting force. Here they would become the foundation for the victories of
Rommel’s Afrika Korps. The German troops they served next to in that theater certainly respected their comrades in
arms. Rommel himself held them in high regard, even if he despised their high command. Their enemies, the British,
respected them as well, with one of their officers describing them as some of the finest troops he had ever faced.

Despite how well the Italian soldier fought, he faced enormous challenges. His weapons were outdated and
ill suited to modern warfare (with the exception of the Carcano rifle and the Beretta SMG). His equipment was
lackluster at best. His armored vehicles were years behind the design curve and would never even begin to catch up
to his opponents. His navy suffered defeats at the hands of his enemies while his air force flew in adequate planes,
yet were outnumbered and outgunned in the end. All the while, his high command was full of bombastic, corrupt, and
inept commanders who were often unfit to lead such solid fighting men. Even worse than all of those things, the
Italian soldiers were flung across North Africa and Europe and left to their fate. It was to Mussolini’s undoing that his
own soldiers were asked to fight a war that very few of the Italian people had wanted nor asked for. Yet while they
followed him and linked their fates to his, many Italian soldiers fought not for Il Duce and some grand new Roman
Empire, but for their nation and their King, the House of Savoy.
th
Perhaps the fitting image for the ultimate tragedy of the Italian Army in the 20 century is the brave Italian
soldiers on the frozen steppes of Russia charging across snowy ground with empty rifles and fixed bayonets into the
teeth of a mass of Red Army machine guns. They, like Mussolini’s dreams of glory, met a tragic end.

General
Italian Infantry Small Arms: Below is a comprehensive list of Italian small arms used in the platoon lists in this book.
Not all small arms used by the Italians in the war are presented here.

Weapon Variety: With the bewildering array of weaponry available to the world during the conflicts listed in these
army lists, it would be impossible to cover them all, and since most of these weapons fall into broad types (such as
bolt action rifle), listing them all would also be redundant. In any case where a list mentions a specific weapon, feel
free to substitute any other relevant type for that category. For example, in the Partisans list the Mauser M24 rifle is
used. Feel free to change this to a Russian Moisin Nagant or a British Enfield if it suits your model collection.
Regardless of the weapon, the stats for each type remain the same.

Vintage Weapons: The Vintage selections indicate weapons that are either old black powder muskets used from the
earliest days of colonization or the later breechloaders such as the Martini Henry and the Needle Rifle. These
weapons were used by many poorly equipped forces in most of the Wars Italy fought in Africa.

The Panzerfaust: This was a rare weapon in the Italian forces allied to Germany, even after 1944. They were
generally only given to Italian units trained in Germany after the Italian Capitulation. Only allow German trained Italian
allied units to be equipped with these weapons, and use them only for scenarios in 1944 and beyond.

Pre-WWII SMGs: The Italians fielded the M1918 Beretta SMG. In most of the formations used prior to WWII,
especially the Abyssinian War and the Spanish Civil War, these were mostly privately purchased by individual
soldiers. As such, they are relatively rare weapons.

Players may wish to severely restrict their use in the lists, allowing only one per unit, or only for special leaders.

WWII SMG usage: By WWII, the mass manufactured and reliable 1938 model of the Beretta SMG began to show up
in larger numbers. By the end of the war, so many had been produced and distributed, that it sometimes equipped
whole units. The Decima Mas Division in particular was widely known to have equipped whole platoons with them.

In any RSI force you may replace the Carcano rifle (either type) with a M1938 Beretta SMG. This was mostly done for
the whole unit.

RSI Forces and German Weapons: Some RSI units were equipped with German weapons (mostly those who were
trained in Germany). The lists presented here for RSI forces use Germans weapons listed. However, many RSI
forces retained their Italian weapons. Players may simply replace the German weapon with the Italian counterpart at
no points change except the following:

MG-34 LMG: -10 points, convert to M1930 Breda.


MG-42 LMG: -20 points, convert to M1930 Breda.
MG-34 HMG: -20 points, convert to M1935 Fiat Revelli.
MG-42 HMG: -40 points, convert to M1935 Fiat Revelli.

Italian Ranks and equivalents


The following ranks as listed on the platoon lists are given in the English (American) military rank. This chart
summarizes the Italian rank and the equivalent Gut score. It is difficult to give literal equivalents to different armies
rank structure. Some of the Italian ranks have been left out and some of the equivalencies are simplified for game
purposes. For example, we did not differentiate between the Private and Private First Class. If there is a rank missing
that you would like to use for your own games, please use the nearest equivalent score. Note: some soldiers may be
listed as a role or function other than the ranks presented in this chart, but their Gut score is as listed on the unit card
for all game purposes.

American Rank Royal Italian Rank CCNN Rank SS Rank


Lieutenant Tenente Capo Manipolo Untersturmführer
Staff Sergeant Maresciallo Capo Aiutante Capo Scharführer
Sergeant Maresciallo Aiutante Unterscharführer
Corporal Caporale Capo Squadra Rottenführer/Sturmmann
Private Soldato Camicia Nera Schütze

Gut Scores
The following chart lists the three Gut scales for the Italian Platoons in this book. This allows players to create
realistic morale scales for the variety of Italian formations and periods of the war, as well as units for specific
scenarios. Please see the Gut scale multiplier on how to adjust point scores for using different Gut scales.

Rank Guts (M) Guts (S) Guts (E) Guts (G)


Lieutenant 9 8 10 7
Staff Sergeant 8 7 9 6
Sergeant 7 6 8 5
Corporal 6 5 7 4
Private 5 4 6 3

(M) Motivated: These are Italian soldiers at their best. When well led, well supplied, and in a spirited offense or
desperate defense, the Italian soldier could, and did, put up a good fight, especially at the platoon level. Use this for
Italian platoons in good condition in the victorious parts of any campaign.

(S) Standard: Despite the soldiers best efforts, the Italian high command, Mussolini’s strategic mistakes, and an
overall poor logistics system often meant that the Italian armed forces were fighting in difficult situations. Once
committed to these disastrous campaigns, the Italian soldier was forced to fight to the bitter end. The better units
fought well, while the poorer units merely melted away or surrendered. This is what could be considered the average
or standard Italian Army Gut scale.

(E) Elite: There were some highly trained specialist units in the Italian army with a strong Esprit de Corps. The
Bersaglieri and Alpine troops come to mind. Some units also displayed a fanaticism that helped them overcome less
training or otherwise losing situations. Blackshirts charging with empty rifles across the frozen waste of Russia in a
desperate last ditch effort against the Red Army, or the Folgore fighting to the last round in the scorching sands of
North Africa against the British onslaught are good examples. Use this scale for Italy’s elite units or units that fought
with stubborn or fanatical determination.

(G) Green: There were a lot of political units that fought with the Italian Army during the war the most famous of
which is the various CCNN units also known as the “Blackshirts”. In their earliest engagements, they were wholly
unprepared for combat and their inexperience was only partially compensated for by their ideological motivation. This
scale could also apply to certain second line units such as the Coastal Divisions that fought in the defense of Sicily
and the Italian mainland. This Gut scale is very low and should only be used in scenario games.

Gut Scale Point Multiplier


Players can use any of these three Gut scales for any of the platoons in this book. The lists presented in the book are
all calculated at the Standard (S) scale for points. Players using a different Gut scale than the Standard must use the
Gut Scale Point Multiplier. This allows for accurate points cost when changing Gut scales. To get an accurate point
total, players should add up their points as per the list, then multiply that total by the Gut Scale Multiplier they are
converting to. This will give an adjusted score. For example, a player decides to use the Rifle platoon list to create an
Elite Wehrmacht platoon. The Rifle platoon list uses a Standard Gut scale and the player needs to adjust this one
step up to the Elite scale. He adds up the points using the list as normal and comes to a total 810. He uses the One
Step Up Multiplier and multiplies his total by 1.1 to come to a new total of 891.

Gut Scale Multiplier


Standard x1
One Step Down x 0.9
One Step Up x 1.1

Special Rules
Some units in this book use special rules to reflect a lack of training or some other combat factor that sets them apart
from other forces. These rules apply to the whole platoon list, unless otherwise noted.

Bunching: One major deficiency found in poorly trained troops is that they tend to bunch up under fire. This is
instinctive, and is done to make the individuals feel more secure. The result in combat is anything but secure, making
the men more vulnerable to explosions. The rules for Blasts do not include templates. There is an assumption that
most WWII soldiers understand the need for dispersion. Many interwar troops would not.

You may nominate for your games that some forces are affected by Bunching. This means that whenever they are
hit by a Blast weapon, regardless of type, add a +1 to the AP before rolling to wound. So a medium artillery that
would normally have a Blast AP of 2, would have a Blast AP of 3.

Poor Artillery: The fast paced nature of WWII combat forced the rapid advancement of artillery coordination.
Specialized artillery spotting and ranging units, even radio equipped FO teams, are critical to effective artillery. There
are unlikely to be these kinds of units among irregular forces.

Indirect fire can be attempted. If no units can see the target unit (speculative fire), the indirect fire ACC is an
unmodified 1. If at least one unpinned friendly unit can see the target unit, the indirect fire ACC is an unmodified 2. If
the firing unit itself can see the target unit, the indirect fire ACC is an unmodified 3. There are no ways to improve
these scores.

Disband: You may designate certain troops to be subject to Disband. A unit subject to Disband operates normally,
nd
even when they receive their first Pin. However, when they receive a 2 Pin, which would normally be a Fall Back,
the unit is removed from play completely without a chance to rally or activate. Whether it is guerillas slipping away to
fight again, or men fleeing for their lives, you have lost the models for the game.

Simultaneous Combat: Some of the frontier wars of Italy were ugly conflicts. The close combat was bloody and
fierce. Players should remember that close combat in DH/C7B is in reality much more about firing at point blank
range and not running away than it is about actual physical combat… but physical combat is part of it too. To
represent this, melee combat is conducted simultaneously. Do not roll for initiative. Each player rolls for all of the
models involved at the same time. Units can potentially eliminate each other this way, resulting in no victor. Continue
to roll for hits and wounds until one or both sides are eliminated. Units still must pass a Charge Test to enter Close
Combat, as normal.

Fanatical Defense: This special rule represents that in some cases motivated opponents of Italy would fight to the
death rather than retreat or surrender. It does not affect Pins. However, in the case of Fall Back or Retreat, after
failing the roll, the owning player may decide to remove models equal to the difference between the rolled number
and the required number instead of Falling Back or Retreating.

As an example, a Libyan infantry band with a leader Guts of 6 is Pinned in a tree line (Light cover). The band
numbers 8 models. They are shot at with an HMG. No casualties are inflicted, but they must take a Guts check. 6 -3
(for the HMG MM) and +2 for the cover of the trees, means the Libyans must roll a 5 or less to pass, or they will have
to Fall Back. The player rolls a 7. The difference is 2. The player may decide to remove 2 models instead of Falling
nd
Back. He still has to place a 2 red marker on the unit for the failed test, but the unit does not have to move back 6”.

These are not normal casualties, and cannot be pulled from nearby friendly units.

Generally, Fanatical Defense would normally be applied to infantry only. Fanatical Defense and Disband are not to be
used together.

Fierce: These men are tough and aggressive fighters and have little hesitation about charging into the teeth of an
enemy position. Fierce units have a +1 bonus to their Guts when Charging.

Tenacity and Vengeance: The Ethiopians fighting in the Second Italo-Abyssinian War were tenacious. They were
poorly armed and equipped yet often fought stubbornly against the Italians. In close combat they could be vicious.
They also refused to leave the bodies of the fallen leaders behind. Because of these characteristics, Ethiopian tribal
forces gain a +1 CC score if they charge into close combat. If a tribal unit loses it’s leader, the rest of the force still
rolls for Initiative as if their leader was still alive. Also, for the next roll for Initiative on the turn after the leader is killed,
the Ethiopian force does not count pinned units against their Initiative score (they do count destroyed units however).

6
Special Cavalry and Mule Mounted Infantry Rules: Some of the lists provided in the following pages are for
mounted platoons, mostly horse mounted cavalry, but also mule mounted infantry. The following rules are for these
types of troops. Use them with Italian cavalry, Libyan cavalry, and mounted Partisans.

Cavalry (Horse Mounted)

Note: Here is a synopsis for running Mounted Cavalry in your games:

Movement: 10” Maneuver, 20” Run. Cavalry may not Sneak. Unless stationary, they fire _ ROF, _ Range. This
speed is generous in a 25mm game, but in 15mm, reduce it as for infantry (ie, do NOT keep speed in inches like for
vehicles). May not enter Buildings, Bunkers, or Ruins while mounted.

Close Combat: CC is +2 if Mounted Cavalry initiate the melee. Also, Guts check for Charging is at +2 always.
Mounted Cavalry may not Charge an enemy in Buildings, Bunkers, or Ruins.

Cover: Whether in the Open, Concealment, or in Soft Cover, -1 ACC to Fire at. Mount offers some protection, but is
overall easier to see and target. In Medium Cover (including behind a Hedge or Wall) -2 ACC. Weather, Smoke,
Night modifiers as normal. Linear Obstacle modifiers as normal. Support Guns do NOT get their Support gun bonus
against Mounted Cavalry.

Dismounting: This takes full Activation, one model (you may choose more) from each cavalry section becomes a
handler, and then the rest of the models may function as standard infantry for the rest of the game. Cavalry may
remount, remounting takes a full Activation. If no model is selected to be a handler, or if the handler is killed, then
the horses are lost for the remainder of the battle, and the cavalry may not remount.

Mule Infantry (Mule Mounted)

Note: Here is a synopsis for running Mounted Mule Infantry in your games:

Movement: 9” Maneuver, 16” Run. Mule Infantry may not Sneak. Unless stationary, they fire at half ROF, half
Range. Mule Infantry may enter buildings and ruins while mounted, only through large openings or doors, but still
can not enter bunkers.

Close Combat: Mule Infantry gain no advantage in CC. Mounted Mule Infantry may not Charge, though they can
defend themselves as normal when charged by a foe.

Cover: Whether in the Open, Concealment, or in Soft Cover, -1 ACC to Fire at. Mount offers some protection, but is
overall easier to see and target. In Medium Cover (including behind a Hedge or Wall) -2 ACC. Weather, Smoke,
Night modifiers as normal. Linear Obstacle modifiers as normal. Support Guns do NOT get their Support gun bonus
against Mounted Cavalry.

Dismounting: This takes full Activation, one model from each section becomes a handler, and then the rest of the
models may function as standard infantry for the rest of the game. Mule Infantry may remount, remounting takes a
full Activation. If no model is selected to be a handler, or if the handler is killed, then the mules are lost for the
remainder of the battle, and the infantry may not remount.

The
Abyssinian
War
(1935-1936)
On October 3rd, 1935 Mussolini invaded the country Abyssinia in Africa on the pretext of a border dispute
that he used to expand Italy's empire and claim military glory. Most African territories were claimed by European
powers unlike Abyssinia which offered Mussolini a chance of conquest and the opportunity to avenge the Italians
casualties suffered at Adowa years earlier where 100,000 Ethiopians destroyed an Italian army of 17,700 men and 56
field guns. The conquest of Abyssinia would join the two territories, Italian Somaliland and Eritrea, which were
already colonized by Italy. The League of Nations had failed in curbing Mussolini's ambition and France and Britain
still sought to retain Italy as an ally, leaving Abyssinia to its own defenses. Haile Sellassie, the Emperor of Abyssinia,
had been prepared and already mobilized an estimated 500,000 men to meet the expected invasion. Much of the
Abyssinian army was poorly equipped by standards of the time with around 200 pieces of antiquated artillery, 50 light
and heavy anti-aircraft guns, a few Ford based armored trucks, a couple old aircraft, some Fiat 3000 WW1 era tanks,
and infantry armed with just about every make of rifle or just spears and bows.
Generall De Bono moved the Italian army and Eritrean Askari into the Abyssinian frontier from the border of
Eritrea and marched towards Adigrat, Inticho, and Daro Tacle. The Northern Front involved the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th
Italian Army Corps and the Eritrean Army Corps, and included Italy's elite troops, the Alpini and Bersaglieri. There
was also a regiment of light tanks, both the CV 3/33 and CV 3/35, with an on paper strength of 165 tanks split
between three battalions. That same day three Italian infantry divisions and some colonial units led by General
Rodolfo Graziani attacked across the (disputed) border from Italian Somaliland. Both attacks took place without a
formal declaration of war.
By 4 October the Italian forcess in the north had successfully taken its three objectives and by 6 October
Italy had taken Adowa (Adwa) and claimed vengeance for the previous century's defeat. On 10 May 1936 Italian
forces from the Northern and Southern Fronts linked up at Dire Dawa, and the invasion was complete, Abyssinia was
now under Italian rule, and the three countries, Abyssinia, Italian Somaliland, and Eritrea, were federated together as
the colony of Italian East Africa (Africa Orientale Italiana, AOI).
Abyssinian (Ethiopian) War (1935-1936): Timeline of Major Battles and Campaigns
October 3, 1935: General Emilio De Bono advances into Ethiopia from Eritrea without declaration of War. De Bono
had a force of 100,000 Italian soldiers and 25,000 Eritrean soldiers under his command. A smaller force, under the
command of General Rodolfo Graziani, advances into Ethiopia from Italian Somaliland.
October 4 1935: Italians occupy Dolo Odo
October 6, 1935: Adwa was captured by De Bono's forces. The fortress of Gedlgube falls to the Italians; Italians
reach K`orahe minfield in the Ogaden Desert.
October 7, 1935: The League of Nations declares Italy the aggressor and started the slow process of imposing
sanctions.
October 10, 1935: Degiasmacc Haile Selassie Gugsa, commander of the Mek`ele sector defects to the Italians..
October 15, 1935: De Bono's forces moved on to capture the holy capital of Axum.
October 16, 1935: Salaclacca falls to Italians.
October 21, 1935: Sultan of Olol Dinle, the Somali ally of the Italians, occupies Geladi.
October 30, 1935: Southern Italian forces with the Abyssinians at River Dewa.
November 11, 1935: Southern Italian forces with the Abyssinians at Hamaniei.
November 25, 1935: Southern Italian forces with the Abyssinians at Lama Scillindi.
November 28, 1935: Italians bomb Degeh Bur. De Bono is replaced by General Pietro Badoglio because of the slow,
cautious nature of his advance. Haile Sellassie decides to test this new general with an attack, but his forces are
repelled due to the Italians' superiority in heavy weapons like machine guns and artillery.
December 15, 1935: Ethiopians counterattack the Italians at Dembeguina Pass forcing the Gran Sasso division to
withdraw and retake Scire area.
December 22, 1935: First Italian use of Mustard Gas.
December 31, 1935: The Italians have taken Denan.
January 12, 1936: Italians defeated the southern most Ethiopian army in the Battle of Genale Wenz.
January 16, 1936: Large scal desertions of Christian Askaris form Eritrean colonial battalions in Somalia, many join
the Ethiopians.
January 20, 1936: The Italians resumed their northern offensive at the First Battle of Tembien between the Warieu
Pass and Mek'ele. The fighting proved inconclusive and ended in a draw on January 24, thought the Ethipian
offensive is halted.
February 15, 1936: Following the capture of Amba Aradam (Battle of Enderta) the Italians advanced again on the
northern front, commencing the Second Battle of Tembien on 27 February. This resulted in an Italian victory and the
fall of Worq Amba.

The
Spanish
Civil
War
(1936-1939)
"When the war in Spain is over, I shall have to have to find something else: the Italian character is formed
through fighting.” -Mussolini

"Today in Spain, tomorrow in Italy" was the warning issued by Mussolini at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil
War. As early as 1934 Nationalist Generals and sympathists had sent emissaries to Italy seeking military aid and
political representation globally. When in July of 1936 the Rebel Generals proclaimed their coup against the
Republican government of Spain, they found much of their Army isolated in North Africa. Franco used contacts
established with Italy to request aircraft to ferry his troops to the mainland.
Mussolini saw this as an opportunity that could bring military glory to Italy as well as extend Italy's influence
in the Mediterranean. He also sought to draw French troops away from Italy’s border in case of war. This war was an
opportunity to create an ally out of the exploratory relationship he currently possessed with Hitler. Transport aircraft to
ferry troops was provided as well as submarines that used Nationalist harbors to attack Republican shipping. After
the failed March on Madrid by General Franco, Mussolini pressured him into accepting an Italian army operating
under Italian command in addition to the vast amount of war material that they provided. This force was first formed in
Cadiz with about 3,000 troops under the name of "The Italian Army Mission" that by January of 1937 swelled to
44,000 soldiers now known as the "Corps of Volunteer Troops", Corpo Truppe Voluntarie or CTV. Many of these
troops had volunteered for work battalions that were supposed to be operating in the newly acquired Abyssinia
territory and were surprised to find themselves in fighting battalions in Spain.
The CTV was organized into 4 divisions: the Littorio Division which was a fully motorized army division, the
1st CCNN Division "Dio lo Vuole" (God wants it), the 2nd CCNN Division "Fiamme Nere" (Black Flames), and the 3rd
CCNN Division "Penne Nere" (Black Feathers). The CCNN, Camici Nere or Blackshirt, divisions contained regular
soldiers as well as fascist militia and were semi-motorized. The CTV also contained tank formations employing CV
33/35s, armored car squadrons using Lancia IZMMs, ten regiments of field artillery, and four anti-aircraft batteries.
Support was also provided by the Italian air force with pilots, technical personnel, and aircraft sent to Franco's forces.
The CTV was formed in secret from the Non-Intervention Pact with soldiers removing identifying patches
and Italian markings. This ruse was short lived and Italy was exposed after the failed attempt to lead a 4th offensive
against Madrid that resulted in the CTV"s defeat at Guadalajara. Italian military autonomy in Spain was not something
Franco desired and after Mussolini's failed Madrid offensive resulted in the CTV"s heavy losses in Guadalajara, the
Italians were no longer permitted to organize their own offensives.
Heavy losses at Guadalajara suffered by the three CCNN divisions resulted in them being reorganized into
two divisions and a special weapons group. The Littorio divisions did not suffer the heavy losses that the Blackshirts
had. As the CTV divisions took losses they began to serve in mixed Italo-Spanish Flechas (Arrow) units where the
Italians provided the officers and technical personnel, while the Spanish served in the rank-and-file.
In the end Mussolini received very little in return for the aid, much of the contracts and concessions went to
Germany. Italy had supplied large quantities of material and logistical support to the Nationalist cause. Over 4,000
Italians lost their lives in Spain, and an estimated quarter of their effective military material. By 1940 Nationalist Spain
was committed to a reconstruction period and had only paid a twentieth of their debt to Italy. This left Italian industry
unable to replace the loss in the short term, unlike the Germans, which resulted in deficits leaving them strongly
disadvantaged for the early portions of the Second World War.
Spanish Civil War (1936-1939): Timeline of Major Battles and Campaigns
July 1936: Luis Bolin flies on behalf of General Franco to Biarritz to ask the Italian government for 12 bombers, 3
fighters, and bombs.
October 24, 1936: Republican forces which attempted an amphibious attack against Majorca are attacked by Italian
air forces. Italians also launch their first air raid against Madrid.
December 12, 1936: After Franco’s failed March on Madrid, Mussolini consults with General Galeazzo Ciano and
General Mario Roatta and decides to send regular army forces to Spain. General Roatta is named Commander in
Chief of the Italian expeditionary force and Luigi Frusci his Deputy Commander.
December 23, 1936: The first 3,000 Italian troops land in Spain at Cadiz and are known as the Italian Army Mission.
January 1937: 44,000 Italian soldiers and members of the Fasci di Combattimento are in Spain. At the end of
February they are renamed the Corpo Truppe Volontarie or CTV.
March 8 to 23, 1937: The CTV leads a fourth offensive against Madrid which results in the Battle of Guadalajara.
This battle resulted in a decisive defeat of the CTV at the hands of a strong Republican counter offensive that
included Italian International Brigadiers. This was the last Italian command offensive, all others are led by Franco.
April to August 1937: The remnants of the CTV Blackshirt divisions are organized into mixed Italo-Spanish Arrow
Brigades that serve respectively in Extremadura and Viscaya.
August to September 1937: General Roatta is replaced by General Ettore Bastico. He leads the CTV forces
including the Division XXIII di Marzo in attacks against the Republicans at the Battle of Santander which resulted in a
victory for the Nationalists. Following the success they were transferred to the Aragon Front.
March 1938: The Flechas Negras Brigade was expanded into the Flechas Division serving in the Aragon Offensive
and the March to the Sea.
March 18, 1938: Barcelona is attacked by thirteen large-scale Italian air raids.
November 1938: The Flechas Divisions and Flechas Azules Brigade are expanded into three Flechas Divisions that
take part in the Catalonia Offensive, the last offensive of the war.
February 1939: The victory of Franco and the Nationalists over the Republicans is concluded and General Bastico
and the Italian volunteers withdraw from Spain.

Rifle
Platoon:
Motivated
This is the core of the Italian Infantry Divisions. These men fought under Mussolini from the earliest days until the
very end of the war. From 1943 onward they fought on both sides of the conflict. It was the Italian rifleman with his
trusty Carcano that bled and died for the glory of Mussolini’s new empire. At the platoon level, the Italian infantryman
was as good a soldier as any of the other major powers. He had the misfortune to be a part of an overall army
structure that lacked the logistics, leadership, and strategic goals to enable him to win his battles he fought so hard
for. The Italian rifle platoon structure is quite different from almost any of the other armies of WWII. There is also a
limited amount of info out there and much of what we do have is often contradictory. The platoon structure presented
below is the one we have settled on to represent the standard Italian rifle platoon of WWII.

Italian Coastal Divisions: Use the Regio Esercito list as is, but drop the Guts Scale to Green.

Corpo Italiano di Liberazione (CIL): These units make up the Italian forces that fought on the side of the Allies after
the Capitulation in 1943. Initially, they were formed of core units from the Regular Italian Army loyal to the King and
retained the same structure and weapons (with some changes unimportant here). Use the Regio Esercito list as is for
CIL units. Keep the Guts scale at Standard.

Army of the South (Co-Belligerent Units): After proving themselves to the Allies in combat around Monte Cassino
(and taking a lot of casualties), the Allies decided to expand on the CIL. Some units of the CIL were then given British
weapons and equipment. These forces included some of the Elite Alpini, Bersaglieri, and Folgore units. For these
units, use the Army of the South list presented below. Keep the Guts scale at Motivated or bump it down to
Standard.

Platoon Organization: Below is shown the number and type of units included in your platoon.
1 Platoon Command
1-2 Rifle Squads
0-2 Platoon Support
0-2 Company Support Teams

Army
of
the
South
These are the units of the Italian Army which remained loyal to the King of Italy, but which sided with the
Allies after Mussolini was removed from power. Though the Allies were often initially distrustful of these Italian troops,
many of the men fought hard for their nation against the Germans and would win the respect of their new comrades.
After proving themselves in battle as part of the CIL, many Italian units were trained and equipped by the British and
often other than insignia, they looked like any other British unit fighting in Italy. For units of the Army of the South not
equipped by the British, use the regular Italian Army Platoon above.

(ENR):
Elite
These are the units which remained loyal to Mussolini and the newly formed RSI after he was rescued by
the Germans and restored to a marginalized power. The men had been captured and disarmed by the Germans and
sent to work camps in Germany. Most of them decided to return to fight for the Germans rather than stay prisoners.
They often paid a high price for this loyalty to their Axis partner and Il Duce as many of them were executed by the
Allied Italians after being captured. These units were trained and equipped in Germany and followed a late war
German platoon structure. Exceptions include the Alpini and Bersaglieri units who retained their former structure, but
were sometimes equipped with German weapons. Of course, not all weapons were German, so if players choose to
do so, they can keep the regular Italian weapons in their platoon or use a mix of weapons.

Alpini and Bersaglieri Units of the ENR: Use the Alpini and Bersaglieri list below. Optional: replace weapons with
German weapons.

Para Units of the ENR: Use the Paracadutisti list as is. Use German weapon options within the list or replace all
weapons with German weapons.
a a
*Decima Mas: The Decima Mas (or X Mas) was formed from the nucleus of the 10 Flottiglia Motoscafo Anti-
th
Sommergibile (10 Anti-Submarine Motorboat Flotilla). It expanded into an autonomous Division sized unit under the
command of Prince Julio Borghese. It was a tough unit that was well trained and equipped, with some of the units
being trained in Germany. The Division became a mix of Infantry, Para, and specialist troops such as engineers and
was most often employed in anti-partisan duties. For this unit, use the ENR list as is, but change the Guts scale to
Elite.

Guardia Nazionale Repubblicana (GNR), and Brigate Nere (Black Brigades): These units were the remnants of
old CCNN units whose loyalty to Il Duce was firm. They were to become the new state security forces in the RSI.
Their duties were mostly anti-partisan and security, but some of the men fought against Allied forces. Use the CCNN
list above for GNR and Black Brigade units. The Gut score remains the same.
th
29 Waffen-Grenadier Regiment der SS: This unique unit was made up of Italian volunteers. Use the ENR list as
is, but upgrade the squad with the second LMG team. This unit was most likely equipped with Italian weapons.

Motorized: If you are representing an Italian unit in one of the fully Motorized Divisions, or from one of the Divisions
which had been partially motorized, then keep the same structure and organization as above, but give each Rifle
squad the option of being mounted in a truck for +20 Points. If appropriate the same option can be extended to the
support units. These vehicles do not count against the units total.
Bicycle: For Bersaglieri units deployed as cyclists, simply add a bicycle for each man in the platoon for free. The
units may not fight from their bicycles. A unit may begin the game mounted and can move as normal infantry, but
their Run move may be up to 12” instead of the normal 9”. On any turn that a unit moves while mounted on a bicycle,
they may do nothing else during that Activation. A unit can dismount from their bicycles at any time during their turn,
but may not move after dismounting, nor shoot during that Activation.
Motorcycle: Some Bersalgieri units may be mounted on the appropriate mix of motorcycles and motorcycles with

Mules: The Alpini Platoon may transport all of their equipment on Mules. These are merely for the equipment to be
transported and play no role in the game.
Mountain Units: The Italians also fielded “Mountain” trained units. These were not true Alpini, but were trained and
equipped to be able to be transported more easily in rough and mountainous terrain. Their training did not include
special mountaineering skills and they did not have the same traditions and level of élan as the Alpini. Use the
standard Italian Infantry platoon for these units.
Pre-WWII Weapons: The M1938 Beretta SMG is not available to Alpini platoons until WWII. For players using the
Alpini in the Abyssinian War of the Spanish Civil War, replace the M1938 Beretta SMG with the M1918 version, and

Italian
Vehicles
Italian Tanks and Semoventes: The Italians would find themselves outclassed in tank engagements on almost all
fronts. Only very early in the war would they experience something close to parity against British armored vehicles.
All too soon, however, British designs would surpass them. The armor of the Soviets, and the armor the Americans
soon brought into the war, was already beyond anything the Italians would be able to field at any time in World War II.
Most of the Italian designs were sound enough, but they were behind the technological curve. Despite this, the
Italians crews fought bravely. It is hard to imagine struggling in a CV33 against T-34s, Matilda IIs, or Shermans. Yet,
this is exactly what hundreds of Italian servicemen did.

Italian Armored Cars: The Italian armored cars, and closely related (but unarmored) Sahariana scout trucks were
widely considered first notch vehicles. Rugged, durable, and practical, these were respected by their foes. The
Italians found ample opportunity to employ them in North Africa, but also on other fronts.

Italian Trucks and Portees: Like virtually every other army in World War II, the Italians went to war with every type
of motor vehicle they could grab. The trucks section lists many different types…but those listed here are only some of
the more important ones. Likewise, the Portees section lists a number of vehicles. Some will seem redundant, but not
all possible gun/truck combinations are listed. For example, it seems that the 20/65 Breda could be found mounted on
almost any captured truck, and many Italian ones too. In any case, if you are fielding a Portee not listed, please select
the data card that is the closest match.

turret was inadequate, so the vehicle does not get the normal traverse advantage. Each of the MGs may only fire into the

main gun (dedicated fire still applies). However, this vehicle has a Rear Machinegun.

Italy’s
Enemies

Blood
on
The
Fourth
Shore
The
Italian
Occupation
of
Libya
(1922-1931)
One result of the Italo-Turkish War (1911-1912) was the Italian occupation of the North African territory now
know as Libya. Despite the treaties signed between Turkey and Italy, the indigenous peoples of this region (quite
likely with the support of Turkish troops left behind after the war) would continue a resistance movement against the
Italian invaders for decades. Idris was the leader of the independent Libyan movement., but it was Omar Al Mukhtar
who would be the best known hero of the conflict.
Mussolini’s rise to power meant a new era of hardship for Libya. The occupation became increasingly brutal,
especially under General Rodolfo Graziani, who would be the best known villain of this conflict (to most outside of
Italy). Mussolini hoped to facilitate the growth of Italian farms and communities in north Africa. Once resistance had
been quelled, tens of thousands of Italian farmers were to be relocated to Libya, the so-called “fourth shore” of Italy.
The methods employed were nothing short of atrocity.
Entire communities were dragged from their homes and exiled to concentration camps where many would
die. Widespread executions took place, inside and outside of the camps. These extreme measures were both
absolutely horrific and absolutely effective. By 1931, the Italians were clearly gaining the upper hand. The capture
and execution of Omar Al Mukhtar that year did not end the fighting, but afterwards the resistance no longer had
hope of dislodging the Italians. When Italy joined the Allies in 1943, it would retain possession of Libya. Not until 1951
would the Libyans gain independence.
Omar Al Mukhtar is one name remembered from a sea of thousands who fought and died. His composure
and tenacity, however, is a reflection of the determination with which this entire people struggled for independence.
The Italo-Turkish War, and the subsequent Libyan war of resistance, saw the innovations of war as the Italians first
brought aircraft, then armor, to be utilized in the fighting. But it is the grim fatalism of the resistance fighters, despite
the terrors of Graziani, that stands out in this conflict.

Notes on Weapons: The following information covers the fighting from 1922-1931. During this period, the weapons
primarily used were either supplied by the Germans or Turks during WWI, or weapons captured from the Italians. A
generic “Mauser” is listed as the primary rifle, representing several different patterns. Very few artillery, and no
vehicles or aircraft, are included as options. You may allow the use of other captured Italian artillery as your scenario
requires.

Notes on Platoons: The Libyan lists are representative of this conflict only, and should not be used in comparison
to the WWII lists. The Italian regular troops fielded against the Libyans should be considered to have a baseline of
Motivated, with Elite units, and Standard where appropriate.

Libyan Infantry Small Arms: Below is a comprehensive list of Libyan small arms used in the platoon lists in this
book. Not all small arms used by the Libyans in the war are presented here.

Libyan Small Arms:


Name Type Range ROF AP MM Special

Note: As with any explosive equipped units, only one of the countable Firing models may Fire an explosive each turn. For
example, in a section of 6 models, 3 may Fire. One may Fire an explosive, the other two may Fire their personal weapons as
normal, and they may Fire at a different target. Any unit equipped with Explosives is considered to have enough to last the entire
battle unless stated otherwise.

Libyan
Cavalry:
Motivated
The Libyan resistance employed irregular horsemen throughout the campaign. They would emerge from rough terrain
that was inaccessible by motor vehicles of the period, attacking any Italian unit who let its guard down.

Libyan Cavalry Special Rules:


Simultaneous Combat may be applied
Fanatical Defense (even if the Libyans are the attackers) may be applied to Cavalry that dismounts
Poor Artillery should be applied

Or other artillery as deemed appropriate, with the agreement of your opponent.

All models are deployed on foot. It is assumed they have horses, and may remount by abandoning the artillery (they
then act as another Cavalry Band).

Libyan
Infantry:
Motivated

some of these may actually travel on horseback, the list allows you to field them as strictly infantry.

Libyan Infantry Special Rules:


Poor Artillery should be applied
Simultaneous Combat may be applied
Disband may be applied (unless Fanatical Defense is applied)
Bunching may be applied
Fanatical Defense (even if the Libyans are the attackers) may be applied

Ethiopian
Mahel
Safari:
Green
These were locally raised troops armed and equipped by the Ras, or leaders of the various tribal groups
within the Mahel Safari or Ethiopian National Forces. The tribal levies themselves were almost always poorly
equipped with few, if any, modern weapons of any kind. However, some of these units during the war were able to
scrounge some rifles and equipment from their foes or were fortunate enough to have a Ras who could equip them.
They also had a tendency to fight savagely in close combat and they tried to never leave the bodies of their leaders
behind.

The
Kebur
Sebangna
(Imperial
Guard):
Standard
These were the best of the Ethiopian Forces and were under personal command of Emperor Haile Salassie.
The units of the Kebur Sebangna had the best weapons, equipment, and training Ethiopia could provide. They were
equipped with modern rifles and machine guns as well as support weapons. The unit structure was similar to the
Belgian Army and was supplied with Belgian cut uniforms. Going toe to toe with the Italians, these men were brave
and tough. However, they were also small in number and stood little chance against Italian air power.

The
Greco-Italian
War
(1940-1941)
Italy invaded Greece expecting to quickly conquer this land, and take one step closer to restoring the might
and power of ancient Rome. The results would disappoint Mussolini greatly. This small war which Il Duce hoped
would be an easy victory marked the beginning of the Balkan Campaign of WWII.
The Greeks had been hardened by decades of conflict as they sought unity, independence, and a clear
political ideology. The weak and timid had died out long ago, leaving only a hardened people. Like the Italians, the
Greeks also had a long history of powerful leaders and victorious armies, stretching back for millennia. They would do
their ancestors proud by fighting fiercely to defend their homeland. Short on modern equipment, and isolated from
their allies, they would be eventually overwhelmed by combined German and Italian forces. But not before they
inflicted many casualties on the Italian invaders.
It would be a long time before Italian veterans of this campaign could forget deadly nights spent on freezing
hilltops, or forget how furtive shadows and faint scrabbling in the dark could quickly turn into a frenzy of charging
men.

Note: The EPK “Pyrkal” was a type of automatic rifle used by the Greeks. It was somewhat unique, and in this list, it is presented as
both an Assault Rifle and a box fed Light Machinegun. When you build your platoon, you must decide which role these will be
fielded in. All EPKs in your force must be fielded in the same way, though you may change your mind for later battles.

Note: The Flamethrower is included as an option, but it would have been a rare item, and not frequently used. The option in the
platoon list below is meant to be used only for scenarios, not as a general option for all battles.

battle unless stated otherwise.

The basic Greek infantry formation was based on the French pattern. The Greek army lacked the depth and
modernization of their Italian and German foes, but could compensate locally for the personal bravery and dedication
of the Greek infantryman.

“Spazio
Vitale”
Spazio Vitale, vital space, was the ideal that powered Italy’s dream of an Adriatic Empire and her Latin
th
neighbour, Yugoslavia, was a country that Italy sought to annex even since the First World War. On April 6 , 1941
Italy was given it’s opportunity at the invitation of Germany to invade Yugoslavia which was aligning to the Allied
forces after a popular uprising had taken place. Germany provided Italy with a vanquished enemy in the invasion
nd
which laid waste to the Yugoslavian army in a matter of days. Mussolini sent forward the Italian 2 Army to occupy
it’s delegated share of the territories that included Slovenia, Dalmatia, Kosovo, and an Italian Governor presided over
Montenegro.
nd
The Italian 2 Army entered into a land of chaos as Yugoslavia split along ethnic and political lines in a civil
war. Initially two resistance movements formed: the Chetniks (formally known as the Army of the Fatherland) which
were Royalists and the Communist led forces which became known as the National Liberation Army. At first these
partisan groups worked together but quickly began fighting each other as the Chetniks began to align more with the
Axis occupiers and the Communists led by Josip Broz, Tito, garnered the support of the Allies by their attacks on the
Germans, Italians, Chetniks, and Ustasha (Croation Nationalists). A poorly supplied Italian army found itself
employing draconian measures in a failed attempt to quell insurrection. Germany only added to this maelstrom by
dictating terms and policies to the Italian occupiers that often led to more acts of resistance from the local populace.
Italy participated in numerous rastrellamentos, mopping up expiditons, against the partisan forces with it’s own forces
as well as with Germans, Ustasha, and Chetniks in ill fated attempts to destroy Tito’s army. It was to no avail.
Yugoslavia became a chimera both politically and militarily and was more than Italy could control. Italian measures to
stop the insurrection only led to stiffer resistance.
The Italian Capitulation in 1943 did not bring peace to either the Italians or the Yugoslavians. Many Italians decided
to join Tito’s partisans which were gaining ground from the other Axis forces and many more of the Italians that
surrendered found themselves captives of their former Axis partners. Yugoslavia had become Italy’s Götterdamerung.

Partisan Infantry Weapons (all groups): A list of Yugoslavian Partisan infantry anti tank weapons, small arms, and
explosives. Other weapons were certainly available and used both from captured stocks and from those supplied by
sympathetic nations. Feel free to substitute the stats from other lists in this book or from other Iron Ivan Army books
where applicable.

Note: As with any explosive equipped units, only one of the countable Firing models may Fire an explosive each turn. For
example, in a section of 6 models, 3 may Fire. One may Fire an explosive, the other two may Fire their personal weapons as
normal, and they may Fire at a different target. Any unit equipped with Explosives is considered to have enough to last the entire
battle unless stated otherwise.

Note: all of the Yugoslavian forces can be considered to carry M35 or M17 grenades.

National
Liberation
Army
(Tito’s
Partisans):
Motivated
This is a general guideline for Tito’s partisans and should only be looked at as a framework with which to
build your force as there were no “regular” units until late in the war. After the Italian Capitulation, the partisans
gained access to large stocks of weapons including artillery and armor.
Tito’s forces also received support from the British and the Soviet Union. Britain provided 56 M3A3 Stuarts
and 24 AEC MkII armored cars to one brigade and the Soviet Union equipped another brigade with 65 T-34/85 tanks.
Also of note is that successful, well trained partisan brigades were upgraded to Proletarian Brigades and received the
best equipment available and had higher morale. To represent these units upgrade their morale to Elite and give
them the full compliment of support options.

Groups
(Chetnik,
Communist,
Ustasha,
Italian):
Motivated
The following is a generic Partisan list that can be used to represent early Chetnik, Communist, or militia
forces as well as any Italian Partisan force after the 1943 Capitulation. In the early period of the war many Balkan
partisans used the weapons of the Yugoslavian army such as the Mauser M24 rifle and later used both captured
German and Italian equipment as well as weapons supplied by Russia and the British. A mix of armament would be
the best representation so substitute what weapons your models are equipped with for the choices. Italian Partisans
also fielded a variety of Italian, captured, and Allied supplied equipment. Feel free to substitute weapons as needed.

Notes
It has taken a lot of work to bring you this book. The Italian Army can sometimes be a difficult force to
research. There is not a whole lot of information out there at the lower levels such as platoon and squad, and often
what is available can be contradictory. We tried our best to bring you a book that contains accurate information on the
Italians, while keeping many of the lists as flexible as possible to account for differences between units and the
development of the Italian armed forces over time. We hope that what we have presented here is a valuable resource
for gaming the Italians.
Mare Nostrum was not only conceived as a book to cover the Italians in WWII, but as a complete work to
enable you to wargame them in Italy’s other wars such as the Abyssinian War and the Spanish Civil War. In that
regard, Mare Nostrum bridges the gap between our WWII rules system, and our Spanish Civil War supplement,
“Primera Battalla”. We also hope we provide enough for you to wargame all manner of peripheral conflicts such as
the Partisan activity that took place in Italy and the Balkans. We are proud to bring you such lists as the Greeks,
Libyans, and the Ethiopians, as they are a more exotic and less covered topic in wargaming in general.

Note on Guts Scores: The Guts scores presented in each section are meant to be used with opposing forces from
the same era. So when using the Ethiopian list, remember to use the Italians from that same list as the Guts scores
are matched up with each other. Mixing the periods might result in a lopsided game or give unpredictable results.

Keith’s Comments: I have only recently (past 3 years) discovered how enjoyable the Italians can be to play,
especially in WWII. They are also fun to play against, whether it is as Soviets, Americans, or even Germans. From
the sands of North Africa, to the Steppes of the Soviet Union, these guys show up all over the place. They even
fought the French in 1940 along the Maginot Line. Their equipment often leaves a little to be desired, but their platoon
structure is one of the most unique in WWII or the other conflicts giving players a unique tactical challenge. I have
only recently begun to collect and paint my own 28mm force of Regio Esercito, but I plan on doing a platoon of
Paracadatuisti for some late war WWII games. Previously, I have always either borrowed, or played against the
Italians. I have found that I have only scratched the surface with the Italians as a wargaming subject, a fact only more
apparent as I helped write this book. Maybe with some head swaps, I might even paint a Coastal Division force…

Chal’s Comments: The Italians were one of my earlier armies to field, as I was looking for a force that could be used
against as many other opponents as possible. The Italians are “that” force, as they fought, in one form or another,
the British, Soviets, French, Americans, Germans, Greeks, Yugoslavians, … even other Italians! The only major
combatant of WWII they didn’t fight were the Japanese, and that was probably only because of the distance involved.
Early on I did not understand as much about the Italians as I do now. There are many myths to be unlearned, and
also many revisionist beliefs that must be avoided. The Italians were not cowards, and they were not supermen.
They were soldiers. They fought well, they fought long. Under their leader they did commit atrocities, but at the
same time the majority of the Italian soldiery avoided wanton bloodshed, and in the end, most of them made the
decision to follow their conscience. And on the game table, Italians are quite interesting to run. There is nothing like
throwing a couple of CV33s on the table and watching your opponent tremble…. or perhaps that’s laughter?

Jayson’s Comments: I have always been fascinated with the less acknowledged forces involved in WW2 and Italy
was no exception. The more I read about Italy and the scope of their involvement in the War, and Interwar, the more
interested I became. Personally I found the RSI unit Decima Mas to be a fun choice for building a force with it being
the only Italian unit to continue fighting the Allies without bearing the yoke of German control. The Italians fought a
long, hard fight across many countries and without many of the amendments enjoyed by the other countries which in
my eyes make them a tough, enjoyable army to play. The next Italian force for me will be some North African troops
to contest the British or to throw some lead at the newly shored Americans.

Final Thoughts: We hope you enjoy this product and Disposable Heroes & Coffin for Seven Brothers. This is our
next to last supplement in our continuing line of army books for WWII. We also have a lot of free information for your
games on our Yahoo group. Here is a place to chat with other gamers, ask questions, and generally keep up with Iron
Ivan Game releases.

This book is as comprehensive as we can make within the space allowed. Of course there are hundreds if not
thousands of variations on units and whole units not represented here. We try to provide as much variety as possible
in this book to allow players to field the various units of the Italian army. We have also provided as many combat
vehicles and guns as possible, plus some aircraft for support. We feel that all but the most obscure of these are
represented. Vehicles not shown can almost always be “fudged” by using a close variant.
