Italian illustrated military postcard, artists, and soldiers
 
I really like the postcards of Italian illustrators, often small works of graphics art despite the propaganda, with particular attention to the used by particular units especially if sent to North Africa….
The Italian soldiers received during the IIWW 5 postcards a week : 3 normal (as ge German feldposts) and 2 illustrated ones distributed by the various offices of the fascist propaganda, that's the reason for the many Italian picture postcards.

I begin in bulk with those centered on the theme "two peoples a victory" on the Italian-German alliance and therefore above all 1941 and 1942, with the two soldiers, German and Italian that fighting together ...

Two of the most common of Boccasile, the two allies take the tooth out of "John Bull" ... the first one traveled by a doctor from the Armored Division Ariete (PM 132) just before El Alamein, the second always sent to North Africa (PM 54) always beginning 1942 by a sergeant of the 24 RACA (Army Corps Artillery Regiment)

thanks my friend... the "franghigie" are very interesting as well as the drawings, often, for the sender or the unit..... for example (posted above) this is an officer commanding the Italian Tunisian volunteers ... here in a beautiful picture of this small battalion of "foreigners" in Tunis in front of the Kasbah barracks

And always on the subject one of the less common and more beautiful of Boccasile postcards in the two versions .

Of this postcard with the double motto "two peoples a victory" in the two language Italian-German were printed two different versions, one for the Italian soldiers where at the top first is in Italian and the first soldier on the left is a German soldier, while that distributed to German soldiers begins with the German motto and the first soldier on the left is Italian ...
