FOREWORD Order of Battle intelligence consists of carefully sifted and evaluated 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.
to VII, is

The second part,

consisting of sections V

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 identification, symbols, and abbreviations will be found in the forthcoming 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 arrangement 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 organization 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 regarded as a single service and comprise the following branches: the Royal Army (Regio Esercito), the Royal Navy (Regia Marina), 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,

.Royal

and Air; in time of war a Supreme Commander is appointed by

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

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 defense 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, commanders 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 administered 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

THE

ITALIAN

ARMY

Officers as concerns the Army but excluding frontier defense. 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 composed 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 assigned 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 formaSince these tions are members of the General Staff Corps. 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:

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, prepare the nation for total war, and especially to free field unit commanders from territorial and administrative responsibilitiesthe 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 Secretary of War (usually a high ranking army officer) and the Assistant Chief of Staff for Territorial Defense. A permanent hom.e structure 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 Defense Commands (Gomando di DiJesa Territoriale). There were 1.6 of theimi at the outbreak of war, as-follows:

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, norn~ally a Reserve Officer unsuited for active field service but qualified 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, railroad, 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 divisions of the conscript army. These were in turn subdivided into
Military Districts (Distretti .Zlfilitari).

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 record of the individual's physical, political, and military

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 postmilitary 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 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. remainder of their conscript service is performed with units of the line. PReserve' Officers are subject to a certain amount of .compulsory. training in the field and are nsed as instructors in premilitary 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 reinforced 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 For instance, an infantry formation to which they are attached. replacement company might be numbered 13, when there are In addition, it already 12 first line companies in the regiment. 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 themThus, the 13th Co., 4th selves may be renumbered 1, 2, 3, 4. 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

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 renumbered 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 A unit of infantry was adopted with certain modifications. 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 Infantry Regiments of the 3d RAVENNA Division. In the same way, the Alpine Divisions were served by march regiments

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 followed, but there were several cases in which the march battalions 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 between 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 There was one case of a the unit at whose depot it was formed. Divisione di marcia, the 8th, consisting of personnel of all arms going as replacements to the Eighth Army in Russia.

Section III. ORGANIZATION 9. Introduction

OF UNITS

Organization of units in the Italian Army is renarkably fluid and elastic. Tables of Organization are rarely followed in practice 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. divisions of all types are numbered in a

'Infantry

continuous series, from 1 to 65, excluding 8, 34, 35, 39, 40, 43, 45, and 46; 101 to 105; and 151 to 159. 185. The SPEZIA Air-Borne

Division was numbered 80 and the parachute divisions, 184 and
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

and 11.

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

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 throughout 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. numbered in sequence within each battalion. g. Engineer units follow no regular system. Companies are Army engineer

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 condition of Italian organization and the frequent reinforcement of higher formations by attachment of units, it is hardly ever possible to locate the position of a division in an area by the identification 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. 11.

13. Divisions. Ordinary Infantry Division. These are called binary (divisione binaria) owing to the incorporation of two infantry regiments instead of the old three regiment .(ternaria) organization.- As from 1 March 1940 a Blackshirt 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 indemobile unit to be used as shock (assalto) troops.. During the Albanian campaign the weakness of the binary division beDivisions which. had suffered heavy losses. had came evident. to be reformed with whatever infantry was available or even by merging. with another division.

Of these the 1st SUPERGA was destroyed in Tunisia This unit had -undergone training in combined 'operations:at Leghorn (the-:Italian combined :operations center) ; and Gaeta, and in mountain warfare at Castelforte.

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 montagna).

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 horsedrawn ,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 detachments of artillery, engineers, and auxiliary services permanently 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.

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 collapsible 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 primarily 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 horseartillery 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 tons, was incapable of more than light assault. majority 3112 and 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 divisional artillery regiment of six battalions (two self-propelled), and probably an armored car unit. The following details apply to an armored division in North

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 frontiers 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 battalions, 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

The names, Cavalry Divisions, respectively, no longer exist. 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 reconstituted 132d ARIETE Armored Division. Armored groups

equipped with L6 tanks or armored cars have appeared recently in cavalry and Bersaglieri regiments. The latest development is the appearance of self-propelled 75/18 guns in cavalry regiments. (5) Self-propelled artillery units. (a) 75/18 SF Armored Battalion mounted on M 14/41 tank chassis. This was the first self-propelled unit to appear (early 1942) and is a normal close support unit. Battalions are numbered consistently in the 550's-560's. Recently a three-battery battalion instead of the normal two-battery type has been identified. (b) 90/53 SP Armored units on M 15 tank 'chassis. Three battalions, the 161st, 162d, and 163d, have been identified. (c) 47/32 SF Armored units mounted on L6/40 tank chassis. Battalions numbered 131-136 inclusive and 2, 232, and 233 have been identified. Several of these were destroyed in Tunisia. (6) Armored flame-throwing units. Certain flame-throwing platoons are. equipped with L3 tanks armed with one 8 mm MG and one flame-thrower. e. Engineers (Genio). (1) Army engineer regiment. Assigned one to each army.

In

function is the defense and support of the Fascist regime.

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 Mussolini, 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). or (3) .Legions (Divisional, Operational). In theory, divisional Blackshirt legions, containing at least two intended to be an organic part 'of operational battaions, -are infantry divisions.

These consist of a variable number of groups of operational battalions. Two such raggruppamenti, GALBIATI and DIAMANTI, were disbanded at the conclusion of the Greek campaign; 23 MARZO and 3 GENNAJO were destroyed in Russia; the 30th Raggruppamento in Sardinia and the 10th Raggruppamento 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 coDstitutes a divisional legion. Operational battalions bear the name of their parent (administrative) 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..

(Milizia (1) Antiaircraft and Coast Defence, Militia Artiglieria Controaerei, MAC-formerly known as DICAT-and Milizia Artiglieria Marittima, MAM-formerly known as MILMART). Although administered from a single headquarters '(Comando arittira), these two militia Milizia Contraerei e Artiglieria organizations normally operate separately.' The Ministries of War and Navy are responsible for technical equipment and In war, units of both the militias operate under the maintenance. 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 A each of 4 AA guns (76/40 and 76/45) and 2 heavy MGs.

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, discipline, 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.

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 mountaineers with an intimate knowledge of the frontier districts of Italy.

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 Since infantry regiments are only to the Infantry Regiments. 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 Knowledge of the which have names with their identifications. name of a unit will permit identification of the unit's number and cross reference either to the "Key to Divisional Units" or Frequent reference should be directly to the division pages. 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.

ERIS

a, Use of the: Index. -The index below contains the latest available 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 The date under the heading appointment became effective. "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 GenIn the Italian erale" as Major General and Lieutenant General.

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 Similarly, a Major General in actually commanding a brigade. 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

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.
