Product Overview

A detailed study of Italy''s long-ignored tank force Explores the intersection of technology, war, and society in Mussolini''s Italy Second only to Germany in number of tank divisions, first to create an armored corps

Though overshadowed by Germany''s more famous Afrika Korps, Italian tanks formed a large part of the Axis armored force that the Allies confronted--and ultimately defeated--in North Africa in the early years of World War II. Those tanks were the product of two decades of debate and development as the Italian military struggled to produce a modern, mechanized army in the aftermath of World War I. For a time, Italy stood near the front of the world''s tank forces--but once war came, Mussolini''s iron arm failed as an effective military force. This is the story of its rise and fall.
