Description :

272 pages, well illustrated, many color profiles, tables, cloth, DJ, very good. 9 by 12 inches. From the DJ: "Using research from a mass of original documentation, including personal accounts and combat diaries, the author takes an objective view and shows that the men who flew the Macchis, Fiats and Savoias were no less skilled or determined than their opponents, but that they were considerably handicapped by aircraft that were usually under-powered, under-gunned and in desperately short supply. Failed by their leadership and at the far end of an inefficient logistics system, for too often all the Italian airmen had that could match their opponents was courage alone.".

Synopsis : During World War II, the Allies dismissed the Italian Air Force as hopelessly ineffective when it was not in retreat. Dunning uses original documents and firsthand accounts to argue that the Italian force's shortcomings were not the fault of its airmen, who were no less skilled or determined than their opponents, but the result of such fundamental problems as under-powered aircraft, a poor logistics system, and incompetent leadership.

A propos de l'auteur: Chris Dunning has spent twelve years researching original wartime documents, unit war diaries, and personal accounts to produce a comprehensive and dispassionate history of the Regia Aeronautica.
