Back to a topic that makes for interesting blog entries. The Italian military and their combat expertise [usually seen as a lack of] during the Second World War [WW2].
As seen at the outstanding Internet web site the Mad Monarchist a rather more full, complete and truthful analysis. To begin and as extracted from the Mad Monarchist:
"The Truth About the Italian War Record [WW2]"
"None of the major participants of World War II have suffered as much unjust and unfounded criticism as the military forces of the Kingdom of Italy. It really is just amazing how this false narrative has taken hold and grown ever stronger and more prevalent over time. According to most mainstream and popular histories, the royal Italian military and the overall part played by the Kingdom of Italy in World War II was totally inconsequential. In a way not seen with any other people, the Italian military is widely dismissed as a comic opera operation with cowardly troops, ignorant commanders and useless weapons totally dependent on their German allies for their very survival."
Read it all! I recommend highly the Mad Monarchist Internet web site without qualification or reservation.
Italian royalty it cannot be said shirked or abandoned their military duty. Rather the opposite. Prince Amedo displaying a degree of command presence admirable. Prince Borghese too in a league almost by himself, the commander of the famed Decima Mas [X].
