Books Info:

The Italian Army in Slovenia free pdf This powerful study offers a vivid and often disturbing account of the Italian army's violent occupation of Slovenia during World War II. Beginning with the decision of the Fascist regime to annex Slovenia as an Italian province in 1941, it moves from the Fascist's naive attempts to Italianize the population, through local resistance and brutal reaction against civilians, to the army's spectacular tactical and organizational failures and its ultimate collapse following Italy's defection from the Axis in 1943. It thus restores an often forgotten, frequently misunderstood chapter of the savage history of World War II.
