You guys have high regards for the Italian Armies.
The Italian war effort can be described as a failure. Italy had only one main front to fight taking on enemies that have many fronts to contend with. The battles of 1915-17 showsed little progress, 1917 the rout of Caporetto.
Only when Austria-Hungary was at the point of revolution could the Italian Armies have large sucess.
I agree. But the Italians had more divisions and ships engaged with the enemy at any one time than the USA had during the entire conflict.
You also have to consider that the “Alpine Front” was one of the most difficult and geographically challenging of the entire war.
