"The spotlight shines on some relatively little-known military men in Italian Navy & Air Force Elite Units & Special Forces 1940-45. Co Authors Piero Crociani and Pier Paolo Battistellin examine units that were regarded as being formidable. Fine artwork by Mark Stacey and some photographs that are considered rare illustrate the intriguing story of these elite Italian units."
-Toy Soldier & Model Figure
"The authors cover the full spectrum of these troops and a goodly portion of the book delves on the 10th MAS with their manned torpedoes and attack boats as they were the ones with the greatest success. As the Elite series is as much a uniforms and troops weapons/equipment book as anything most of the photos concentrate on that aspect of things. There are the usual superb full color plates to go along with this, so those who are figure modelers will find much interest in this title. I learned a great deal I did not know from this book and found it to be not only an interesting read, but a look into what could have been. It is one I can easily recommend to you for a look at a little known aspect of Italian military history."

"This coverage uses vintage rare wartime photos and new color pictures of uniforms and equipment to narrow the focus on the unit's many achievements, with M. Stacey's illustrations making this a key survey for any World War II military collection."
