Product Description

About the Author

Philip S. Jowett was born in Leeds in 1961, and has been interested in military history for as long as he can remember. Before beginning his series on the Italian Army of World War If he was the author of the much praised men-at-Arms 306 'Chinese Civil War Armies 1911-49'. A rugby league enthusiast and amateur genealogist, he is married and lives in Leeds. Stephen Andrew was bom in 1961 in Glasgow (where he still lives and works). In the last few years he has established himself as one of the best young illustrators of military subjects working today. An entirely self-taught artist, he worked as a junior in advertising and design agencies before becoming a freelance illustrator in 1993. Military history is his passion, and since 1997 he has illustrated Osprey titles induding MAA 306 Chinese Civil War Armies 1911-1949, and the five-volume sequence on the World War II German Army.

Format: Paperback
Overall it is a nice summary of the Italian forces in Africa and Ethiopia during WW2. Good information on events, nice pictures of uniforms and some good photos but I was very disappointed with the research into the order of battle. For example, it states that 22 medium tanks were sent to Africa Orientale (Ethiopia) before the outbreak of war when in fact it was 24 medium tanks that were sent. And for its descriptions of the Libyan battalions in North Africa it clearly conflicts with the Italian Official History on North Africa. You would think that a book on the Italian Army would use the Italian Official histories as a basis for research which would have avoided these mistakes.

An excellent volume. As a wargamer and modeller I found this book to be extremely useful and informative so much so that my original copy has become well worn and dog-eared and I had to buy a new one.
