Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

This book is a complete guide to the Regia Marina, the navy with which Italy fought the Second World War. Starting with the historical background, it describes how the navy developed, how it was organized, the facilities that supported it, and the operations it conducted both before and after the armistice in 1943. It also details all its ships, with full technical particulars, plans and photos. Furthermore, there are chapters on special topics like camouflage; uniforms, decorations and insignia; and a ‘who’s who’ of important naval personalities; and the reference value of the book is enhanced by a comprehensive bibliography and guide to sources.

The illustration is a noteworthy feature of the book as the author’s collection of naval photographs is one of the best in Italy. He is also a fine draftsman, and his ship plans and color illustrations are both detailed and accurate, adding a particular appeal for model makers.

Of all the main combatant navies of this era, the Italian is probably the most poorly represented in English publications, so this comprehensive handbook will be especially welcomed by the naval history community.

About the Author:

Maurizio Brescia has published a number of books on Italian warships and provided illustrations for many more. He is on the editorial board of the monthly Storia Militare and is a regular contributor to other magazines, including the Italian navy's official Revista Marittina.
