REGIA MARINA: Italian Battleships of World War Two. This book is mostly a wonderful pictorial history, but it contains insightful narrative to inform the reader about the crucial battles of Taranto and Sirte.

Click to EnlargeREGIA MARINA: Italian Battleships of World War Two, A Pictorial History, by Erminio Bagnasco and Mark Grossman. When Italy declared war on France and Britain in 1940, the Italian Navy possessed a formidable fleet of 7 battleships with which it hoped to rule the Mediterranean Sea area, but only two of them were combat ready. If naval strategy had trumped political needs to delay the war until all 7 were ready, the war might have proceeded differently. This book is mostly a wonderful pictorial history, but it contains insightful narrative to inform the reader about the crucial battles of Taranto and Sirte. The newer Italian battleships were powerful weapons with inspiring silhouettes, but lack of support vessels and scarce fuel supplies crippled the Italian efforts from the beginning. This book is a great resource for Navy history buffs as well as for modelers. Softcover, with many fascinating b/w photos. 74 pages.
