FOREWORD

Order of Battle intelligence consists of carefully sifted and evalu-


ated information received from a great variety of sources on the
organization, strength, and disposition of enemy forces. This
information, if complete and accurate, not only facilitates the
planning of military operations but enables commanders in the
field to judge the enemy's local capabilities and to make their
decisions accordingly.
The purpose of this text is to furnish intelligence officers with a
detailed picture of the basic composition and disposition of the
Italian Army. The first part, comprising sections I to IV, is for
general orientation on the structure of the Army and its high
command, the types of units and their organization, and the other
Italian militarized and auxiliary formations. The second part,
consisting of sections V to VII, is the Order of Battle proper,
giving specific data on the names, numbers, composition, location,
and commanders of all identified units of the Italian Army. This
latter type of information is of course constantly changing, and it
is therefore intended to issue sectional or complete revisions of the
book at suitable intervals.
More details on the basic organization of units, means of identi-
fication, symbols, and abbreviations will be found in the forth-
coming Technical Manual on the Italian Armed Forces and the
MIS Special Series publication. on Italian military abbreviations,
signs, and symbols.
All intelligence personnel concerned with the Italian Army
should become thoroughly familiar with the contents and arrange-
ment of this book so that they can perform their duties more
intlligently and can use the great mass of factual data given here
as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Section I. ITALIAN HIGH COMMAND

1. Introduction.
Within certain limitations due to differences in political organi-
zation of the two countries, the Italian military system is very
similar to the German.' It is obvious that the interrelation of
the Armed Forces of the Axis Powers has been in effect for some
time, at least sufficiently to have permitted the modeling of
various principles of organization of the one upon those of the
other.
The Armed Forces (Forze Armate) of the Italian state are re-
garded as a single service and comprise the following branches:
the Royal Army (Regio Esercito), the Royal Navy (Regia Ma-
rina), the Royal Air Force (Regia Aeronautica), the Royal
Customs Guards (Regia Guardia di Finanza), and the Fascist
Militia (Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezza Nazionale-MVSN)
or Blackshirts (Camicie Nere-CCNN).
2. Supreme Command of the Armed Forces.
The King is the Supreme Commander of all armed forces
(Comandante Supremo delle Forze Armate dello Stato). In time
of peace he delegates his powers to the Ministers of War, Navy,
and Air; in time of war a Supreme Commander is appointed by
.Royal Decree with the approval of the Council of Ministers.
Hitherto MUSSOLINI, as Head of the State and Minister of War,
Navy, and Air, could determine the selection of the Supreme
Commander and exercise direct control over the Armed Forces
both in peace and in war. In addition MUSSOLINI was Chairman
of the Supreme Commission of Defense (Commissione Suprema
di Difesa), an inter-ministerial and Armed Forces council re-
sponsible for the coor ti n of all olicies and practices of total

war. Its membership comprises the highest officials of the State


and the ranking members of the Armed Forces.
The Supreme Commander appointed bears the title of Chief
of the Supreme Geeral Staff (Capo di Stato Maggiore Generale)
and is selected fr the rankliig' of116 of any branch of the
Armed Forces. Theoretically, he was the teclmical adviser of
MUSSOLINI in all matters concerning the coordination of de-
fense and the conduct of land,' sea, and air operations. In the
exercise of his functions he works in conjunction with the Chiefs
of Staff of the Army, Navy, and Air Forces. To facilitate this
coordination, le has his own staff (Sttto Maggiore Generale),
which functions as liaison between himself and the various
services through the respective ministries and general staffs.
3. Army High Command.
The Commander in Chief of the Army is the Chief of the Army
General Staff. Selected from the general officers of the Army, he
is appointed by Royal Decree on approval of the Council of
Ministers. lie serves under the Chief of the Supreme General
Staff and functions as teclmical adviser to the Minister of War
in, time of peace. In time of war he exercises his appointed
functions at the headquarters of the armies in the field,. He
communicates directly with army and field commanders, com-
manders of corps areas, and inspectors of the various arms and
services. He is assisted by the Deputy Chief of Staff (Sottocapo
di Stato Maggiore).
The Army General Staff consists of three sections, each ad-
ministered by an Assistant Chief of Staff appointed by Royal
Decree: (1) Operations (Sottocapo di Stato Maggiore per le
Operazioni), which supervises territorial and colonial operations,
training, recorls, and intelligence; (2) Administration (Sottocapo
di Stato Maggiore Intendente), which supervises organization,
mobilization, transportation, and services; and (3) Territorial
Defense (Sottocapo di Stato Maggiore per la Difesa Territoriale),
which is responsible for all defense, including coast defense as far

as concerns the Army but excluding frontier defense. Officers


of the General Staff are rarely posted to this section, which
normally consists of specialists in the various branches within
whose jurisdiction defensive measures fall.
Each branch of the Alm3d Forces has its own General Staff.
The Army General Staff (Stato Maggiore deli' Esercito) is com-
posed of the General Staff Corps (Corpo di Stato Maggiore) and
the General Staff Service (Servizio di Stato Maggiore). The
head of the General Staff Corps is the Chief of the Army General
Staff. After a three-year course at the Staff College and upon
recommendation of a board from the General Staff Corps, officers
selected for the Army General Staff are reassigned for one year to
the headquarters of a line unit. On successful completion of this
assignment, they are posted to the General Staff Service and serve
as heads of the various staff departments of a unit headquarters,
assisted by attached and complementary officers who may be
temporarily employed. On promotion, an officer must serve with
a unit of his own arm for two years, after which he is again as-
signed to the General Staff Service. On promotion to a' ran
equivalent to that of Lieutenant Colonel, and subject to having
fulfilled his duties satisfactorily, an officer is transferred to the
General Staff Corps. There, are normally 48 Colonels and 178
Lieutenant Colonels in the Corps, while the number of officers
in the Service is unlimited. All chiefs of staffs in higher forma-
tions are members of the General Staff Corps. Since these
officers remain in close collaboration with the parent body, the
Chief of the Army General Staff (and through him the Chief of
the Supreme General Staff) is kept in very close touch with the
daily conduct of the war.
4. Rear Echelon.
The functions of a rear echelon in time of peace and war are
executed by the Central Administration of the Army, directed by
the Under Secretary of State for War. The following sections are
comprised in this office:

1 ' r~

d. General Accounting Office
e.. Inspectorate General of Recruiting.
The general supervision of administration, training, organiza-
tion, armament, and equipment affecting the various arms and
services pertains to the appropriate inspectorate. Inspectors
correspond in general to the former American chiefs of arms and
services. There are Inspectorates of Artillery, Infantry, Engi-
neers, Motorization, Animal and Veterinary Services, Commissary
Services, Alpine Troops, and Cavalry (Celere) Troops. These
Inspectorates are consulting offices for the Under Secretary of
War and the Chief of the Army Staff.

Section II. BASIC STRUCTURE OF THE ITALIAN ARMY

5. Introduction.
For practical reasons-in order to facilitate mobilization, pre-
pare the nation for total war, and especially to free field unit
commanders from territorial and administrative responsibilities-
the Italian Army is divided into Field Units (unii& di campagna)
and Territorial Units (enti territoriali). The Field Army is under
the direct control of. the Chief of the Army Staff and his staff at
field headquarters, who devote them-selves primarily to military
operations. All other matters are entrusted to the Under Secre-
tary of War (usually a high ranking army officer) and the Assistant
Chief of Staff for Territorial Defense. A permanent hom.e struc-
ture is set up in peace time and carries over, with accelerated and
more extensive functions, in time of war.
6. Regional Organization.
Army Commands are represented in peace time by the Army
Generals designated to co mand armies in time of war (Generali
designati d'Armata). These commanders are responsible under
the Minister of War and the Chief. of the Arm.y Staff for all
military administration and preparations for war in the areas
allotted to them. In time of war, they may be given effective
command of an army. The rank of Army General Designate
continues to exist in tim e of war.
Army Corps Areas were responsible in peace tim.-e for all troops,
services, headquarters and other military establishments within.
the Corps Area. The headquarters of the Corps were stationed
within definite areas which were also designated Territorial De-
fense Commands (Gomando di DiJesa Territoriale). There were
1.6 of theimi at the outbreak of war, as-follows:

I Torino IX Bari
II Alessandria X Napoli'
III Milano XI Udine
IV Boizano XII Palermo
V Trieste XIII Cagliari
VIBologna XIV Treviso
VII Firenze XV Genova
VIII Roma . XVI (unknown)

They are numbered concurrently with the Corps whose head-


quarters and components they contained in peace time. There
were in addition corps headquarters for four independent corps-
Armored at Mantova, Alpine at Trento, Cavalry (Celere) at
Padova, and Semi-Motorized at Cremona-which were in effect
staffs to control the training and organization of the specialized
units. They did not have a corresponding Territorial Defense
Command.
Since the Commander of the Corps Area would on mobilization
depart with his corps to join the Field Army, his main concern
was the training and equipment of the corps in preparation for
war. All administrative matters were assigned to a deputy, nor-
n~ally a Reserve Officer unsuited for active field service but quali-
fied by seniority and experience for the post. Each Territorial
Defense Command thus became responsible in time of. war for
the continued provision of trained manpower and administrative
services for the corps which had originally come from that. area
and for those subsequently organized in it. In 'addition, due to
the particularly exposed situation of the Italian peninsula, each
was made responsible for local antiaircraft, coastal, antigas, rail-
road, and other defenses. These Corps Areas were originally
divided into varying numbers of Military Zones, of which there
were twenty-eight in all, corresponding to the number of divi-
sions of the conscript army. These were in turn subdivided into
Military Districts (Distretti .Zlfilitari).

, t 1 j
ORDER OF BATTLE OF THE ITALIAN ARMY

Italy was divided into 106 Military Districts, plus one at


Rhodes, four in Libya, six in Italian East Africa, and detached
sections at Leghorn, Zara, and. Tolmezzo. Each district was
organized into the following sections:
a. Headquarters; handling administration of troops and reserves
within the district; serving as mobilization center and garrison
headquarters in time of war
b. Recruiting section
c. Registration section
d. Mobilization section
e. Reserve forces section
f. Finance and Quartermaster section
g. Headquarters Service Unit

7. Draft of Personnel.
All Italian males are subject to military duty. Training begins
at an early age and carries through most of the Italian's life.
Training in youth organizations is under the control of the
Gioventui Italiana del Littorio (GIL) and is divided into the
following subdivisions:.
Figli -della Lupa from birth to 8 years of age
Balilla from 8 to 14 years of age
Avanguardisti from 14 to 16 years of age '
Giovani Fascisti from 16 to 18 years of age
Premilitari from 18 to 21 years of age

The Balilla and the Avanguardisti are given the first rudiments
of military instruction and are organized on the basis of the
ancient Roman legionary system.' Compulsory military training
begins at the age of 18, when youths are subjected to intensive
preparatory courses and exercises for their future conscript service.
During this period, youths are selected for eventual enrollment in
the Army, Navy, Air Force, and the various specialist and NCO
schools. Instruction is carried out under the direction of the
GIL and is imparted during specified periods by officers of the
.'Fascist Militia, Reserve Officers, and NCOs.
Actual control of youths for military purposes begins at the
age of Ii when a Libretto personale is issued, in which is kept an
'exactrecord of the individual's physical, political, and military
thistory. At, the age of 18 his name is posted on a draft list
(lista di leva) and he is assigned for prem.ilitary training to a unit
of the GIL. At the age of 21 he is examined by a draft board
(consiglio di leva) and placed in an appropriate category, depend-

10 ORDER OF BATTLE OF THE ITALIAN ARMY

ing upon his physical condition and the results of his premilitary
training. Except in particular cases, the normal period of service
in peace time was for 18 months, from April of the year following
that in which the twentieth birthday fell to October of the next
year. Postmilitary training was compulsory until the age of
32 and reserves were periodically recalled to the colors for refresher
courses, particularly in the cases of specialists and NCOs. At
present, nearly all able-bodied men between the ages of 20 and
30 are serving in the Armed Forces, with prerilitary and post-
military service under direct control of the Armed Forces on. a,
war basis within the organizations for territorial defense.
Noncommissioned officers of the rank of sergeant and above
(so vfticiali) are volunteer long-service professional soldiers.
Junior NCOs (graduati di truppa) are promoted from among the
conscripts and perform the last part of their service as corporals,
with special provisions for more rapid advancement of those who
have profited exceptionally from premilitary training.
There are two principal categories of officers:
a. Regular Officers (Uf iciali in Servizio Permanente Iffettiio):
drawn from the Military Academies at Turin and Modena, with
additional training at service schools. Additional officers are
drawn from among Reserve Officers and exceptionally qualified
senior NCOs.
b. Reserve Officers (Liciali di Corplerento): Youths who
attain a certain standard of education are compelled by law to
carry out their conscript service as Reserve Officers. They form
the main source for junior officers on mobilization. After seven
months of intensive instruction at special service schools, the. re-
mainder of their conscript service is performed with units of the
line. PReserve' Officers are subject to a certain amount of .com-
pulsory. training in the field and are nsed as instructors in pre-
military and postmilitary training.

8. Replacement Training System.


The organization in the Italian Army for the production of new
units and for the supply of replacements is very similar to the
German. Ersatz system. Every unit of the Field Army is rein-
forced as necessary from the depot of the unit in Italy. The rate
of forming reserve, units depends on circumstances and is fairly
elastic. Normally, the unit of first line reserves is one degree
smaller than the field unit which it serves; each infantry or
artillery regiment usually has a reserve battalion. When a
division is engaged in active operations, the process is speeded up
and second line formations equal to the field units are formed. In
such cases, the second line units are temporarily termed "bis"
(duplicate) units and may bear the same number as the first-line
unit. Certain types of units-Alpini, motorized infantry and
artillery, and tank units-continuously form reserve formations,
limited only by the need for special training and the ability to
equip them.
The numbering of replacement units or new formations does not
follow a rigid scheme. Normally, reserve units take numbers in
the series already existing for their type of unit within the larger
formation to which they are attached. For instance, an infantry
replacement company might be numbered 13, when there are
already 12 first line companies in the regiment. In addition, it
might be attached to a battalion of the normal regiment and thus
be called the 13th Company, 4th Battalion of the parent regiment.
When four companies have been formed (13, 14, 15, 16), they may
become a reserve (complemento) battalion of the regiment and
take on the number of the regiment, while the companies them-
selves may be renumbered 1, 2, 3, 4. Thus, the 13th Co., 4th
Bn, 27th Regt, may become as a reserve unit the 1st Co, 27th Bn,
serving the 27th Regt. Confusion may easily arise in the case
where the renumbered company does not associate itself with the
reserve battalion, but directly with the parent formation: the
3d Co, 27th Regt may be either a regular component of the 1st

(,\ \
it ,1 I
12. >1 'qDE. ,OF. BATTLE THrE ITALIAN ARMY

Bn in the field or the reserve unit in the 27th Bn at the training


depot. ,In addition, other reserve battalions attached to the
same division may carry the divisional number.
The composition of reserve battalions often varies from the
normal organization. Thus the 27th Bn may include rifle, MG,
and antitank companies, since it may be serving as. a reserve
unit for the various. types of units in. the regiment. These
reserve units are intended as depots for personnel rather than for
weapons and have only a skeleton armament. It would therefore
be exceptional to find them in an operational role. However,
it may be assumed that reserve units which have been renum-
bered and formed into independent units, or which are being
grouped with other units to form a new division, will be fully
equipped with weapons.
With minor variations, the same system of replacement units
applies to all combat units of corps and armies as well as to
divisions. Although usually adhered to, it is not rigidly followed
under exceptional circumstances. If a division in the field engaged
in combat has absorbed all replacement personnel from its own
depot, replacements will be sent from depots of other units. It
may likewise absorb independent and fully formed new units.
This leads to confusing identifications in the field through the
personnel of these units continuing to wear the gorget patches
(mostrine) of their parent formations.
Particular situations obtained in Russia and during the African
campaigns. In Russia the German system of march battalions
was adopted with certain modifications. A unit of infantry
replacements bore the number of the regiment to which it was
going and, when sufficiently large in numbers, it was organized
into a march regiment, bearing the number of the division. Thus,
the 3d Reggimento di marcia, including the 37th Battaglione di
marcia, served as a replacement unit for the 37th and 38th In-
fantry Regiments of the 3d RAVENNA Division. In the same
way, the Alpine Divisions were served by march regiments

~rl1,,
aI ~ ,, 1
BASIC ST TA 7-13

numbered 102, 103, 104, corresponding to the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th
Alpine Divisions, wit Ai a s numbered the same
as the particular rep!ents they were feeding. In the case of
Bersaglieri regiments, the principle of numeration is not clear.
The only replacement unit identified was the 120th Reggimento
Bersaglieri di -marcia, with three, march battalions, and was
presumably destined to reinforce the 3d and 6th Bersaglieri
Regiments of the 3d Cavalry Division. In Africa, due to the
pressure of the situation, complete units were sent over which
were either incorporated in their entirety into already existing
regiments or were split up by companies among several existfing
battalions. In general, the regular system of numbering was fol-
lowed, but there were several cases in which the march bat-
talions had no number.. It should be kept in mind that march
battalions do not necessarily feed the regiment at whose depot
they were formed and whose number they bear.
In general, it may be said that reinforcements of other arms are
also called reggimento di marcia, that they have numbers from
100 upwards, and that rarely can a connection be observed be-
tween the number of such a unit and the field unit for which it
may be destined, although the march unit may bear the number of
the unit at whose depot it was formed. There was one case of a
Divisione di marcia, the 8th, consisting of personnel of all arms
going as replacements to the Eighth Army in Russia.
Section III. ORGANIZATION OF UNITS

9. Introduction
Organization of units in the Italian Army is renarkably fluid
and elastic. Tables of Organization are rarely followed in prac-
tice and are often frankly abandoned in favor of substitute
formations loosely called raggruppamenti, a term applied to
collections of homogeneous units as well as to combat teams or
task forces of a more self-contained nature with components of
the various arms and services.

10. Numbering of Units.


All Italian divisions except coastal divisions bear both a name
and a number, either of which may be used alone in referring to
that unit. 'Infantry
divisions of all types are numbered in a
continuous series, from 1 to 65, excluding 8, 34, 35, 39, 40, 43,
45, and 46; 101 to 105; and 151 to 159. The SPEZIA Air-Borne
Division was numbered 80 and the parachute divisions, 184 and
185. Numbers 131 througb 134 were allotted to armored divisions,
while 136 was also originally intended to be armored. Cavalry
divisions were numbered 1, 2, and 3; Alpine divisions 1 through
6; and coastal divisions in the 200 'series through 226.
When no calls are being made for replacements on a division
depot and trained infantry and artillery personnel have been
formed into second-line regiments, a new division may be formed.
The two infantry regiments assume the name and numbers of the
regiments of one of the disbanded World War brigades. The
artillery regiment is allotted a new number in the regular series
and this number is taken for the whole division. In this way,
reserves at the depots of the 43d and 44th Infantry Regiments
were expanded into two regiments (the 121st and 122d) and formed
the MACERATA Brigade; At the same time 'the reserves at

the 36th Artillery Regiment depot were formed into the 153d
Artillery Regiment. The combination of the new units with
appropriate divisional troops became the new 153d MACERATA
Division.
a. .Infantry regiments, with the exception of Alpini and terri-
torial defense units, are numbered in one continuous series up to
94, after which the numbering becomes erratic. They are arranged
in pairs in divisions: the 1st and 2d RE Regiments are in the
13th RE Division. However, many infantry regiments and all
cavalry regiments have names different, from that of the division.
There are 66 regiments with numbers between 100 and 383, of
which 12 are the extra regiments of triangular divisions. Such
extra regiments are in the 300 series; they have a number whose
last two digits are the same as one of the original divisional
regiments. For example, the 29th PIEMONTE Division has
the 3d, 4th and 303d Infantry Regiments. Five nondivisional
regiments have been identified: the 100th, 101st, 102d, 202d, and
265th. Within the regiments, battalions are numbered from 1 to
3 and companies from 1 to 12 consecutively. Complement or
reserve battalions 'bear the same number as the regiment which
they supply. The three Sardinian Grenadier Regiments
(GRANATIERI DI SARDEGNA) are numbered from 1 to 3.
The two Savoyan Grenadier Regiments (GRANATIERI DI
SAVOIA), destroyed in Italian East Africa, were numbered 10
and 11.
b. Aipini'regiments, although numbered in sequence from 1 to
11, are not grouped in sequence when forming part of a division.
There is no 10th Regiment, this number being reserved for an
association of former Alpini officers and men. Alpini battalions
have names but no numbers. The complement or reserve bat-
talions of the regiments have names which usually start with the
prefix VAL or MONTE. Alpini companies are numbered con-
secutively in one series throughout the ten regiments. Those in
normal battalions are numbered up to 79; in MONTE battalions

y j
SA T' OF THE ITALIAN ARMY

f 86 and 200; in VAL battalions from 200 upwards. They


are frequently, but not invariably, numbered in sequence within
a battalion. For example, the IVREA Alpine Battalion has
companies 38, 39, and 40; the VAL CAMONICA has 250, 251,
and 252; but INTRA has 7, 24, and 27, while MONTE
ROSA has 112, 134, and 135.
c. Bersaglieriare normally picked troops of high quality. There
were originally twleve infantry regiments, numbered from 1 to 12,
and an armored car regiment, the 18th. Two regiments, the 30th
and the 120th, were actually replacement units. Battalions have
distinctive numbers, which bear no relation to the regiment to,
which they belong, but companies are numbered consecutively
throughout the regiment.
d. Artillery regiments usually bear the same number as the
formation to which they were originally allotted, but there are
many exceptions. The original five army artillery regiments,
numbered from 1 to 5, were not assigned to armies-of the, same'
number. In fact, army artillery raggritppamenti were formed
from them to reinforce armies in active operations, but even in
these cases the numbers of the two units did not correspond, since
the number of the raggruppamento was allotted in keeping with
their particular numbering progression. In the case of corps
artillery regiments, new formations were made by adding a zero
to the number of the parent regiment. The latter is*usually the
same as that of the corps. The battalions of the army and corps
artillery regiments are distinctively numbered, but in an' elastic
and variable manner, occasionally showing a semblance of system
as in the 5th Corps Artillery Regiment with the 12th, 20th, 112th,
and 120th Battalions. The highest known number of regular
divisional artillery is 205. Although the battalions and batteries
usually follow a regular progressive system of numbering within
the higher unit, battalions numbered as high as 75 and batteries
as high as 150 have been found.
Other artillery units are numbered in separate series. Alpine

';i \
z 17

rnd mobile artillery regiments are numbered consecutively.


Autonomous battalions attached to corps have numbers between
200 and 3.00. Self-propelled armored artillery battalions are in
the 550 and 560 series, Some heavy self-propelled antitank
battalions have been identified in the 160 series. Organic antitank
battalions are usually numbered the same as the division but are
.often attached to _;other divisions. Antitank companies, both
organic and autonomous, are consecutively numbered, the highest
found being 355.
e. Cavalry regiments bear names and numbers, the latter in a
regular sequence. There are- two independent groups, the
CAVALLEGGERI DI SICILIA and the CAVALLEGGERI DI
SARDEGNA, and three light tank groups, named SAN GIUSTO,
SAN .MARCO, and SAN MARTINO. The battalions of
cavalry regiments are numbered in two continuous series through-
out all the regiments. The "1to 20 series was originally intended
for mounted battalions, and the 51 to 60 for dismounted battalions.
With few exceptions, cavalry battalions are. now all dismounted
and are either autonomous or attached to other formations.
J. Armored divisions are numbered in the 130 series. The tank
regiments of these divisions bear the same number as the division,
with a complement regim3nt at the regimental depot bearing a
number 100 lower. For instance, the 132d ARIETE Division
had as first-line the 132d Tank Regiment and at its depot the 32d.
In the case of the 131st CENTAURO, the 131st Tank Regiment
was detached to Sicily in command of the tank battalions on the.
island, while the 31st Tank Regiment went with the division
The 1st, 3d, and 4th Tank Regiments are simply training and
administrative depots. Medium battalions were numbered in
a continuous series from 8 to 20. The four R35 battalions were
numbered 1, 2, 101, and 102. Light battalions are numbered in
sequence within each regiment from 1 upwards. Companies are
numbered in sequence within each battalion.
g. Engineer units follow no regular system. Army engineer

iegiments usually form raggrupparnenti, whose numbers do not


usually coincide with those of the armies. Corps engineer regi-
ments invariably bear the same nunber as the corps to which they
belong, but the numbering of their battalions is variable. Mixed
engineer battalions attached to divisions usually, bear the division
number or a number related to it. Their components, particu-
larly the pioneer company, often have the divisional number..
Signal companies assume independent numbering in series up
to and over 100.
h. The two parachute divisions were the 184th NEMBO, with
the 184th and 185th Regiments, and the 185th FOLGORE,
with the 186th and 187th Regiments.
i. Coastal divisions have only numbers, all in the 200 series,
the highest identified being the 226th. Coastal regiments are
numbered between 1 and 178, and battalions as high as 581, with
no correspondence between the two series. Coast. artillery bat-
talions have been found numbered as high as 600, but the greatest
percentage fall between 125 and 225.
j. Smaller organic units, including mortar and machine gun
battalions, usually bear the same number as the division to which
they were originally assigned. However, due to the fluid condi-
tion of Italian organization and the frequent reinforcement of
higher formations by attachment of units, it is hardly ever pos-
sible to locate the position of a division in an area by the identi-
fication of only one of its components. Particular care must be
exercised against locating the actual position of a division by the
identification of its reserve units.

c. Corps Artillery.
The composition of a corps artillery regipa t ,may vary. from
three to eight battalions of medium guns and howitzers. The
usual weapons of corps artillery are the 105/28 and 105/32 guns
and the 149/43 howitzer. There is evidence that the 149/35 gun
is sometimes used by corps formations, but in this case it may.be
decentralized from army.

artillery regiment of six battalions, the mcst frequent organization:

Most army corps artillery regiments have formed raggruppa-


menti which bear the same number as the parent regiment. In
North Africa the raggruppamento was the corps artillery pooi; in
the case of some corps in the Balkans and Russia the raggruppa-
mento " appears to include all the corps artillery in the field, the
parent regiment existing only at the depot in Italy; in other cases
the, raggruppamento has been detached from its- corps and sent to
"a different theater. There are also a number of. raggruppamenti
'which have no corresponding corps artillery regiment.

13. Divisions.

a.Ordinary Infantry Division.


These are called binary (divisione binaria) owing to the incor-
poration of two infantry regiments instead of the old three regi-
ment .(ternaria) organization.- As from 1 March 1940 a Black-
shirt Militia Legion of two battalions was attached to infantry
divisions, partly, it is believed, to increase the amount of infantry
in the division and partly to include Blackshirt troops with regular
army formations. The Legion is, however, described as an inde-
penident mobile unit to be used as shock (assalto) troops.. During
the Albanian campaign the weakness of the binary division be-
came evident. Divisions which. had suffered heavy losses. had
to be reformed with whatever infantry was available or even by
merging. with another division. Now that infantry . divisions in
the Balkans have been brought up to strength, some have been
;given. a third infantry regiment. IXis not yet clear whether this
is a reserve or whether it means a change in establishment..
The following is the normal, organization of the ordinary in-
fantry division:

The normal strength, of the division is- approximately. 1-2,500
including some 1-,350 Blackshirts.
b. Assault and Landing.Division (divisione da sbarco e d'assalto).
A new form of organization adopted in 1941 and believed to
*have affected only three divisions, the: 1st SUPERGA, 4th
LIVORNO, and 20th FRIULI. Of these the 1st SUPERGA
was destroyed in Tunisia This unit had -undergone training
in combined 'operations:at Leghorn (the-:Italian combined :opera-
tions center) ; and Gaeta, and in mountain warfare at Castelforte.
For these special- tasks, certain specialized units .such as. 'assault
engineers, rocclimbers and. flame-throwers .were -incorporated.
into the division.
T.o fit smaller units for independent operations heavy support
weapons in the infantry regiment are, decentralized from regi-
mental to battalion control and light -support weapons -from bat-
talion to company control.
c. 'Semi-Motorized Infantry Division (divisione . fanteria auto-
trasportabile).,
This division differs from ordinary infantry divisions in that it
may have motorized artillery, no Blackshirt Legion, and two
'mortarbattalions in the field. if not.on table of organization.
The artillery regiment consists .of:

Two 75/27 gun battalions (Mtz)

d. Motorized Infantry Division (TRENTO type). (divisione,


fanteria motorizzata).
Originally designed to operate with; an armored division.
Three, the 16th PISTOIA, 101st TRENTO, and 102d TRIESTE,
were destroyed in Africa in 1942 and 1943. The 10th PIAVE in
Italy, the only remaining motorized division, does not appear to
possess a Bersaglieri Regiment.
e. Mountain Infantry Division (divisione di fanteria da mon-
tagna).
Mountain divisions differ from Alpini divisions and are infantry
divisions especially adapted for operations in. mountainous
countries where full use cannot be made of horse-drawn artillery
and motor transport. The only difference in the organization of a
mountain division as compared with an ordinary infantry division
is in the artillery regiment. All guns can be transported in horse-
drawn ,wagon-loads or. on pack animals.
The artillery regiment consists of:.
Headquarters
Two 75/13 howitzer. battalions (pack)
75/13 howitzer battalion' (horse-drawn in loads)
Strength: 2,791 men. MT: 142.'_ Animals: 910
f. Alpine Division (divisione alpina).
Essentially mountain divisions with personnel drawn from
Alpine regions. Alpine regiments are self-contained with de-
tachments of artillery, engineers, and auxiliary services per-
manently attached. This makes the regiment self-supporting
and capable of independent action for a considerable period.
Decentralization is further extended to Alpine battalions and
companies which may b.e detached from their parent units and
regrouped withartillery -units into raggruppamenti. ,. This -is
facilitated by the. existence of independent transport even down
to company level.

ORDER .OF AS E OF THE ITALIAN ARMY

g. Cavalry Division (divisione celere).


The main components are two horsed cavalry regiments and
one cyclist Bersaglieri" regiment.. The cavalry regiments are
virtually mounted infantry. The Bersaglieri regiment has col-
lapsible bicycles and could be semi-motorized if necessary. The
artillery regiment has two motorized batteries and one pack
battery, and the division includes a support group of light tank
squadrons. This semi-mechanized division was designed pri-
marily for warfare in terrain which,.though mountainous, permits
use of semi-mechanized formations in a reconnaissance or support
role. Fire-power has been sacrificed to this end and it is not
designed for defense.
There are indications that efforts have been made to mechanize
the. divisions completely; but this has been hindered by shortage
of trained personnel and equipment and by demands being made
on the divisions. Their motorized artillery batteries went to
Libya. One division was sent to Russia with a re-formed horse-
artillery regiment; and was later reinforced by a reserve motorized
artillery regiment.
h. Armored Division (divisione corazzata).
The armored division as designed before the war with a mixture
of light' and medium tanks, none heavier than 11 tons and the
majority 3112 and,5tons, was incapable of more than light assault.
Armored. divisions have changed radically in composition under
German influence with an improved type of medium - tank, the
introduction of self-propelled (semovente) guns, and heavier
divisional support weapons.
In. addition to a tank regiment of at least three battalions the
divisionn now has a semi-motorized Bersaglieri regiment, 'a divi-
sional artillery regiment of six battalions (two self-propelled), and
probably an armored car unit.
The following details apply to an armored division in North

available:
Headquarters

One Bersaglieri regiment
One support and antitank battalion

i. Parachute.Division.
There have been only two Italian parachute divisions. The
three original parachute regiments were formed into a division,
probably mainly .for purposes of administration. The 185th
FOLGORE was destroyed in Africa where it had been operating
as ordinary infantry. The 184th NEMBO is now being trained
in Italy, with an organization probably according to the original
plan, as follows:
Headquarters
Two parachute regiments
Parachute artillery regiment (47 mm AT guns)
Parachute motorcycle. company
Parachute' mortar company (81 mm)
Parachute mixed engineer company
Services

j. Coastal Division.
Coastal divisions, which at first appeared to be merely adminis-
trative collections of coastal and territorial battalions for coast
and home defense, have now assumed a more definite organization.
Although still not possessing a fixed table of organization, they
appear to include under their command, at least in Sicily where

a. Infantry (Fanteria).
(1) Infantry regiment (reggimentoJanteria).
The standard Italian infantry regiment consists of three rifle
battalions and 81 mm mortar and 47 mm AT gun companies.
(2) Infantry regiment-Assault and Landing Division.
Has no 2 81 mm mortar and 47 mm AT companies. These
weapons have been decentralized to. battalion support companies,.
while the lighter weapons in turn have been assigned to the rifle
companies. Thus both battalions and companies are better
equipped for independent operations.
(3) Grenadierregiment (reggimento granatieri).
Only the three Sardinian Grenadier regiments, numbered from
one to three, remain. The two Savoy Grenadier regiments
stationed in Italian East Africa, numbered ten and eleven, have
been destroyed. A grenadier regiment has the same organization
as an ordinary infantry regiment.
(4) Semi-motorized division infantry regiment.
Similar in organization and armament to, an ordinary infantry
regiment.

two rifle battalions; third battalion-the regimental 'support and
antitank battalion-includes a 20 mm AA :gun company, 47 mm
AT company, 81 mm mortar company, and a MG gun company.
(7) Alpine regiment.
May contain two, three, or four battalions, though three is the
normal number. The battalion is the highest Alpine unit which
has a fixed organization. ' In addition to' its first-line units each
regiment has formed at its depot a number of second-line battalions
which may be. distinguished by the fact that their names always
begin with VAL or MONTE. These battalions normally operate
with Alpine artillery units, in independent raggruppamenti of
varying sizes, but may also be used as replacements for the parent
regiment.
(8) Bersaglieri cyclist regiment.
Allotted to cavalry (celere) divisions or army corps.
(9) Bersaglieri.motorcyclist regiment.
Allotted to. armored and motorized divisions.
(10) Bersaglieri armored car regiment.
A late development in Bersiiglieri units. One regiment, formed
in Italy, is probably mainly a training unit.
(11) Bersaglieri motorcyclist company.
In cavalry (celere) divisions is detached and functions as an
independent unit directly under the division commander.
(12) Parachuteinfantry regiment.
At present only two are known to exist, the 184th and 185th,
newly formed in Italy presumably to replace the 186th and 187th,

ions, which are also divisional troops.
(14) Alpine-battalion
The highest Alpine unit with a fixed organization. Battalions
and companies contain independent supply and transport services
and are frequently employed on independent missions.
(15) T erritoriailMilitia battalions.
Since the outbreak of the war certain Territorial Militia battal-
ions have been formed from conscripts, presumably those unfit
for -field ,service. , These battalions. have an organization. similar-

(3) Dismounted cavalr


All nondivisional cavalry regiments have been dismounted and
detached to coastal or LC defense tasks throughout Italy: These
regiments have ceased to act as such, their battalions being grouped
administratively under the nearest cavalry regiment depot or
detached to other formations.
.(4) -Mechanized cavalry groups.
Armored groups of the 1st NIZZA, 5th NOVARA, and 13th
MONFERRATO Cavalry Regiments operated in Africa equipped
with armored cars and L-6 tanks.

LE OF THE ITALIAN ARMY

Independent battalions and batteries of Frontier Guard


artillery belong to the various covering sectors and are independent
of the regiments except concerning technical matters.
Although normally employed on defense of the northern fron-
tiers of Italy, many Frontier Guard artillery units have recently
been transferred to Southern Italy and the Mediterranean' islands.
d. Armored Units.
(1) Tank infantry regiment (reggimento fanteria carrista)'.
One tank regiment, composed of from three to five tank battal-
ions, was normally assigned to each armored division. The tank
regiments of Italy's three armored divisiois, the 31st, 1324 and
133d Regiments, were destroyed in Africa. The 131st Tank
Regiment, formerly the depot regiment of the 13 1st CENTAURO
Division and equipped with French tanks (R 35), was separated
from the division and sent to Sicily.
The 32d and 33d Tank Regiments (depot) served as holding
depots for the reserve and training battalions of their first-line
divisional regiments. The 1st, 3d, and 4th Tank Regiments
exist as training depots and as depots for forming new battalions.
(2) Tank infantry battalion (battaglionefanteria carrista).
Three to five battalions assigned to each tank regiment.
(3) Light tank groups.
The original light tank groups SAN GIUSTO, SAN MARCO,
and SAN MARTINO, which belonged to the 1st, 2d, and 3d
Cavalry Divisions, respectively, no longer exist. The names,
however, occasionally persist (a) in theaters of operations in
connection with the. cavalry divisions which fostered these groups
and (6) at the original depots of the units 'where new drafts
continue in some cases to use the old names.
(4) Armored cavalry groups.
Armored car groups have been identified with the 8th, 10th,
and 16th Cavalry Regiments, now incorporated in the reconsti-
tuted 132d ARIETE Armored Division. Armored groups

Section IV.. OTHER MILITARIZED AND AUXILIARY ORGAN-


IZATIONS
15. Fascist Militia (Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezza Nazio-
nale or MVSN).
The militia, popularly known as Blackshirts (Camicie Nere,
CCNN) is a purely 'Fascist partly organization whose primary
function is the defense and support of the Fascist regime. In
1923 the militia was declared an integral part of the armed forces
of the state, while retaining its identity as an independent force.
Blackshirts were organized under a GHQ at Rome under Mus-
solini, with a Chief of Staff' as the executive commander.
The latter in war comes under the' direct orders.of the Chief of
the General Staff.,
Territorially, the Militia is organized into 14 Zone Commands
in Italy, corresponding roughly to an army corps area in peace
time. No militia zone commands exist overseas.
a. Ordinary Militia.
(1) Groups oJ Legions.
.Thirty-three such groups exist as administrative headquarters
in Italy;
(2) Legions (Administrative).
These are depot legions established in Italy and responsible for
raising and training operational battalions for service with the
army. Each administrative legion bears- a name and a' number.
The names may be of places (e. g. CREMONA), or of men (e. g.
MUSSOLINI), or of qualities (e. g. FEDELISSIMA).
(3) .Legions (Divisional,or Operational).
In theory, divisional Blackshirt legions, containing at least two
operational battaions, -are intended to be an organic part 'of
infantry divisions. Injractice however this organization. has

broken down. Many battalions have had to be withdrawn from


first-line divisions owing to their lack of training and poor fighting
qualities; others were transferred from one division to another
with great frequenc nd. filly were formed into inde-
pendent raggrupparti:
; This was v rtually a return to the
militia organization which _was officially abandoned when the
battalions were incorporated into the army. Divisional legions
generally bear the name and number of one of their constituent
battalions.
(4) Blackshirt Rcggrppamenti.
These consist of a variable number of groups of operational
battalions. Two such raggruppamenti, GALBIATI and DIA-
MANTI, were disbanded at the conclusion of the Greek cam-
paign; 23 MARZO and 3 GENNAJO were destroyed in Russia;
the 30th Raggruppamento in Sardinia and the 10th Raggrup-
pamento in Yugoslavia still exist.
(5) Blackshirt battalion (battaglione d'assalto or battaglione
CONN).
An operational unit, composed of volunteers, for service with
the Army.
In March 1940, 132 Militia battalions were incorporated
into the Army, 82 being. assigned to 41 infantry divisions. Each
pair of battalions attached to infantry divisions generally coD-
stitutes a divisional legion.
Operational battalions bear the name of their parent (adminis-
trative) legion and a number.
(6) "A" (Aorte) Blackshirt battalions.
Operational battalions selected for special training and service
abroad as independent units, not attached to infantry divisions..
(7) Blackshirt territorialdefense battalions.
Raised by administrative legions at depot and training centers
in Italy. Operationally, under orders of the Territorial Defense
Command.
Organized into cohorts (coorti)., centuries (centurie) and maniples

b. Special Militias.
(1) Antiaircraft and Coast Defence, Militia (Milizia
Artiglieria Controaerei, MAC-formerly known as DICAT-and
Milizia Artiglieria Marittima, MAM-formerly known as MIL-
MART).
Although administered from a single headquarters '(Comando
Milizia Contraerei e Artiglieria arittira), these two militia
organizations normally operate separately.' The Ministries of
War and Navy are responsible for technical equipment and
maintenance. In war, units of both the militias operate under the
control of local Territorial Defense Headquarters.
Both MAC and MAM are composed of men between the ages
of 18 and 20, or over the age of 37, or who are unfit for active
service.
(a) Antiaircraft Artillery (MAC).
The AA defenses of the Army and of the 'country itself are
separate, the MAC being responsible only for the latter. - The
MAC comprises a Central AA Militia school, 5-groups of legions,
and 22 legions. Each legion contains 4 battalions of 4 batteries
each of 4 AA guns (76/40 and 76/45) and 2 heavy MGs. A
battery has 3 officers and 134 enlisted men.
(b) 'Coast Defense. Militia (MAM).
Responsible for manning coast defense batteries; comprises a
headquarters, 3 groups of legions, 14 legions, and a school.
Coast defense batteries of defended ports and bases are generally
manned by naval personnel.
(2) Railway Militia (Milizia Fierroviaria).
In peace, the Railway militia preserves order on the railways.
In war, they are used as railway guards and possibly as railway
operating troops! The personnel is drawn from the staff of the
State Railways.

(5) Forests Miilitia (Milizia Forestale).
Responsible for the' protection and exploitation of forests,
fisheries, and game. Some of the units are given special military
training, and units served as combatant troops in the' Italo-
Ethiopian and. Italo-Greek wars.
The Forests Militia cooperate with the Army for supplies of
timber and are employed in the preparation of camp and bivouac
sites.
The organization consists of a headquarters, 9 territorial legions,
motorized legions, 3 autonomous cohorts, 1 college, 1 school,
and 1 Albanian Legion, with a total strength of 5,000.
(6) Roads Militia (Milizia Stradale).
Responsible for road police duties. In war, it cooperates with
the military police (Carabinieri) in traffic control, but its units
are not used as combat troops except in an emergency.

c. Young Fascists (Giovani Fascisti).
On the entry of Italy into the war in 1940 volunteer battalions
of Young Fascists who were due for military service in the fol-
lowing year were enlisted ihto 24 special battalions with an official
establishment of 19,000. They are used for local defense in rein-
forcement of the territorial battalions of the CCNN.
16. Frontier Guards (Guardia alla Frontiera;GaF).
Organized into a Special Corps in 1939, they are responsible for
the defense of frontier districts. Whereas they were formerly only
fortress artillery the new organization gave them supporting arms,
independence of action, and the primary task of acting as a
covering force.
Frontier Guards organization now includes artillery and in-
fantry regiments, machine gun battalions and companies, engi-
neers, and services. Operationally, they are organized in cover-
ing sectors (settori di copertura), which are divided into sub-sectors
(sotto-settori) and fortified positions (caposaldi). Each sector is
numbered and has units of artillery, infantry, and machine guns.
In war, a group of sectors may come under the command of an
army corps where Frontier Guards headquarters are attached,
In peacetime they may come under the Territorial Defense
Command.

17. Royal Carabinieri' arabinieriReali-OCRR).


Carabinieri are the senior arm of the regular army, but though
trained, and occasionally used as fighting troops, their normal
function is that of a military police force. The recruiting, dis-
cipline, equipment, and armament of the Carabinieri are the
responsibility of the Ministry of War, but as regards purely police
duties, they come under the- Ministry of the Interior.
In the field their duties include traffic control, escort duties,
security, and counter-espionage (known as Centro Statistico)..
Mobile battalions are used for reconnaissance and liaison between
operating units.
Carabinieri are responsible for the registration of the annual
conscript classes and the smooth working of mobilization. In
addition, they perform the duties of a civilian police force except
where the Corps of Public Security Officers or municipal police
function. Each army headquarters has 12 CCRR sections and
each corps and division 2 CCRR sections for administrative and
military police duties. Each section has a strength of 1 officer or
warrant officer and 70 other ranks.
a. Headquarters.
The headquarters of the Carabinieri is located at Rome and is
commanded by an Army Corps General.
b. CCRR Divisions.
The three Carabinieri divisions, which are purely administrative
organizations, are commanded by Divisional Generals of the
CCRR and are designated as follows:
1. PASTRENGO-Milan
2.' PODOGA-Rome
3. OGADEN-Naples
c. CCRR Brigades or Zone Inspectorates.
There are 7 Brigades -numbered 1, to 7 and commanded by
Brigadier Generals of the CCRR. For questions regarding mili-
tary training and other subjects outside the scope of their civil

police duties, the bigade commanders are under the orders of the
army corps commander in whose area they operate.
d. CCRR Territorial Legion.
There are 28 Legion; Headquarters in various, towns in Italy.
Territorial legions are divided into a varying number of groups..
Groups are of two kinds, gruppi interni for the towns, and gruppi
esterni for the country districts, and are further sub-divided into
companies (tenenze or. lieutenant's -command), sections (sezioni),
and posts (stazioni). Territorial legions also. include mobile
groups (nuclei) of motorcyclist machine gunners; in addition two
battalions of, the CCRR are attached to the Rome territorial
legion and one each to the BOLZANO and PALERMO territorial
legions. They are probably identical with mobile battalions of the
CCRR consisting of motorcyclist and light tank sections.
The Rome territorial legion also contains one group of squadrons
of mounted Carabinieri. The latter form the King's bodyguard
(Carabinieri Guardia del Re), popularly known as Corazzieri
(Cuirassiers).
e. Other Units.
The Carabinieri also include one High Command of CCRR in
Albania, a Central Carabinieri school,. and a Cadet Legion.
An Autonomous Group of CCRR in the Aegean Islands is
administered by, the. 2d Division at Rome.
Carabinieri units are generally known by the names of the
loc~alities in which they are stationed.
18. Royal Customs Guard (Regia Guardiadi Finanza).
The Customs Guard is an integral part of the Armed Forces
of the State, its members being recruited largely from moun-
taineers with an intimate knowledge of the frontier districts of
Italy. The force is under the Minister of Finance except as
regards mobilization, when it comes under the Minister of War.
In the colonies it is under the local governor.
The Guards are stationed along the land and sea frontiers of

In war their forces are placed at, the disposal of the army to
cooperate with the Frontier Militia and Frontier Guards in form-

centration. A few battalions were formed as' fighting troops and
took part in the Albanian campaign. Organization is on a terri-
torial basis, under the Ministry of Finance. There is a GHQ at.
Rome directing Zone Inspectorates' (Ispettorati di Zona) which
control Custom's Guard Legions.
Italy is divided into fifteen Customs Guard districts, one for
each principal town, with each district supervised by a legion.
A legion (legione) consists of two battalions (circoli) each of two
companies. A company 'has two or three platoons (tenenze or
lieutenant's commands), each of three sections (brigate). Trieste
and Naples each have an inner and outer. circolo so that in these.
cases there are four instead of two battalions in the legions. The
sections, which, vary in number of. personnel, are of the. following,
different categories:
a. Mobile Brigade (Brigata Volante) .- Personnel dressed -,in
civilian clothes. Responsible for 'inspection -ofshops and offices.
' b. Fixed Brigade '(Brigata Stanziale).- Stationed at factories
operating under state monopoly and at docks.
c. Coastal Brigade (Brigata di Spiaggia) .- Responsible for anti-
smuggling activities.
d. Maritime Brigade (Brigata Mare).-Customs guards pro-
vided with cutters for the inspection of vessels.
e. Mixed Brigade (Brigata Mista).-May have one or more of
the above functions.

Section VI. TABLES OF IDENTIFIED UNITS


23. Introduction.
The following pages contain only those units which have been
identified. These are listed in tabular form with details as to
their character and the higher units to which they belong, so far
as these are known.
Paragraph 24 is a reference chart listing the more important
units and offers an easy means for identifying a division through
identification of one of its components. The number in the
column headed "No of Unit" is the number assigned to any of
the units listed at the top of the chart. The number under each
of these units is the number of the division to which the unit is
assign'ed. As an example, the 1st Inf Regt is in the 13th Inf
Div; the 1st Gr Regt in the 21st Inf Div; the 1st Cay Regt in the
2d Cav, Div; the 1st Alp Regt in the 4th Alp Div, and so forth.
The column headed "Division or World War Brigade" applies
only to the Infantry Regiments. Since infantry regiments are
normally assigned in pairs, beginning with an odd number, to
their brigades and divisions, the name listed in this column is
that of the higher formation to which the two infantry regiments
printed beside it are assigned. For example, the 1st and 2d
Inf Regts belong to the 13th RE Div; the 135th and 136th Inf
Regts formed part of the World War CAMPANIA Brigade.
In Paragraph 25 are listed alphabetically by name. all units
which have names with their identifications. Knowledge of the
name of a unit will permit identification of the unit's number
and cross reference either to the "Key to Divisional Units" or
directly to the division pages. Frequent reference should be
made to this table of names, since Italian units are normally
identified both by name and by number, the one serving to check
the other.

f QDE:R 9 OF TIE ITALIAN ARMY

9 Section II. GENERAL~ ERIS


33. Introductioan.

a, Use of the: Index. -The index below contains the latest avail-
able information on general officers in the Italian Army, African
Police, Customs Guards, and Fascist Militia.' They are listed in
alphabetical order, without regard to rank or branch. The index
is incomplete, as there are undoubtedly many general officers about
whom no information is available. Some of. the officers described
below as prisoners of war are not carried in recent Italian Army
Officers' Registers; in this case they may be Air Force officers.
The age given is that reached in 1943. "Seniority" is the date
of the officer's promotion to his present rank. The date under
"Appointment (as of)" is that on which his most recent known
appointment became effective. The date under the heading
"Last identified" is not always the date on which the officer was
last known definitely to be occupying the post listed under
"Appointment"; it' is, however, an indication of the value of the
information as a whole. For example, a combat officer in his
fifties or early sixties who was last identified in July 1941 is not
likely to be occupying at present the post to which he was assigned
two years ago. On the otter hand, an officer in the medical or
judicial branch, or a reserve officer in his late sixties, may very
well have the same- appointment for several years.
b. Ranks.-English-speaking readers should be careful not to
translate the Italian "Maggiore Generale" and "Tenente Gen-
erale" as Major General and Lieutenant General. In the Italian
Army. a Brigadier General _-of Infantry or...Cavalry is always called
"Generale di Brigata," while a Brigadier. General of Artillery,
Engineers, or services is usually known as a "Maggiore Generale."
The latter, however, may be called "Generale di Brigata" if he is
actually commanding a brigade. Similarly, a Major General in
the Infantry or Cavalry is a "Generale di Divisione," while an
officer of this rank in one of the other arms or services is called
_d 43,
GENERL 0 ~~ace
"Tenente Generale" unless he is in command of i i n
General officers in the Carabineers and in the Fascist Militia have
still other titles. (See chart below). Ranks of general officers in
the Air Force are very similar to those in the Army, with the
addition of the word "Aerea." In the Italian Navy, officers other
than those of the line use Army titles of rank.
For the sake of clarity in the index below, the symbol "Brig
Gen". is used for all Army and Carabineer officers whose rank is
equivalent to that of a United States Brigadier General. "Div
Gen" is used for all Army and Carabineer officers whose rank is
equivalent to that of a United States Major General. For the
Fascist Militia officers, however, the original Italian titles are
used.
