Derided by Allied propaganda which made it out to be an air force equipped solely with elderly biplanes, ineffectual in attack or always in retreat, the Regia Aeronautica was overshadowed by its mor ruthless Axis partner, the Luftwaffe.

Far too often, all the Italian airmen had that could match their opponents was courage alone. Large format. B/w photos. Colour illustrations. ISBN: 1902109023. Top & tail of spine lightly shelf-worn. Couple of minor knocks to lower edge of boards. Couple of minor marks to contents else clean. Pictorial dustwrapper is lightly edge-creased, scuffed and has a small ink mark to front panel.
