ITALIAN ARMY OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR The Grey-Green Uniforms from 1909 to 1919


Respected publishers Verlag Militaria turn their attention and considerable expertise to the field of Italian uniforms of the First World War in this lavishly illustrated work, showing caps and steel helmets as well as uniforms, and covering all the models of the army’s field uniform from the time the new uniform was introduced to the end of the war. Contemporary black-and-white photographs show how the items of dress were worn in action. In addition, the two volumes include numerous short biographies and bequests from prominent figures such as Luigi Cadorna, Armando Diaz, Gabriele d’Annunzio, Cesare Battisti, Damiano Chiesa, Fabio Filzi, Ettore Lajolo and the Calvi brothers, and formations like the 87th Air Force Squadron ‘Serenissima’, which flew a daring mission over the enemy city of Vienna in August 1918
