9781841766867: Italian Arditi: Elite Assault Troops 1917–20 (Warrior)

The Italian Reparti d'Assalto (Assault Units) of World War I (1914-1918) were a truly elite force. The word ardito (pl. arditi) means bold or daring, and, as their name suggests, their role required courage, as well as specific combat skills. This book takes a close look at the origins, training, dress, weaponry and equipment of the Arditi, and examines the daily life, motivation and combat role of these elite soldiers. The legacy of their identity is also examined, in the presence of D'Annunzio and rise to power of Mussolini in post-war Italy.
