This book is the only complete guide in English to the Regia Marina, the Italian navy with which Mussolini fought World War II. 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. There are chapters on special topics like camouflage; uniforms, decorations and insignia; and a 'who's who' of important naval personalities. The reference value of the book is enhanced by a comprehensive bibliography and guide to sources. The illustrations are drawn from the author s collection of naval photographs, considered one of the best in Italy.
