Operation Compass came to a halt. PERIODS OF COMMAND 10 June 1940 28 June 1940 Marasciallo dellAerea Italo Balbo (killed by friendly AA fire) 28 June 1940 11 February 1941 Marsciallo dItalia Rodolfo Graziani (requested to be relieved after the defeat in Operation Compass and the surrender at Beda Fomm) 11 February 1941 19 July 1941 Generale dArmata Italo Gariboldi (relieved because of his alleged lack of cooperation with Rommel) 19 July 1941 05 February 1943 Generale dArmata Ettore Bastico (promoted Maresciallo dItalia on August 12, 1942) Note: The supreme command was dissolved after Libya was lost to the British in February, 1943. Although the post of Supreme Commander nominally included the command of all Axis forces in Libya (excluding Egypt 1942), its actual responsibilities were steadily diminished, and it was Rommel who was considered the commander since the autumn of 1941. The situation of the Supreme Commander was further complicated by the incessant interference from Mussolini himself and Cavelleros Comando Supremo (Rommel faced similar problems when dealing with Hitler, Keitels OKW or Kesselring). Special thanks to Stefan Schlemmer for the OOB and Note.

I c reated Comando Supremo: Italy at War in 2000 because of the the limited amount of information on Italian forc es in WWII that was available online. Thanks to people like you, this site has grown to what it is today. Thank you for visiting and please bookmark the site!
