THE DIVISIONS OF THE ARMY OF THE RSI 1943-1944: Volume 2
This second volume covers the 'San Marco' Division, which operated in Liguria and Garfagnana, against the Allies, until the end of the conflict, and the 'Monterosa' Alpine Division.
Two-volume set examines the Divisions formed by the Army of the RSI as well as the departments used in the fight against the partisans by the Republican National Army, starting from the last months of 1943.
The purpose of 'continuing the war' had always been present since the beginning of autumn 1943 in the military authorities of the Social Republic. During talks between Mussolini and Hitler it was agreed to form a new fascist army of 10 to 15 divisions. In reality, only 4 were planned and formed by the Republican National Army: 1st Bersaglieri Division 'Italy,' 2nd Grenadiers Division 'Littorio,' 3rd Marine Division 'San Marco,' and 4th Alpine Division 'Monterosa.'
