Hallo semovente

An interesting intellligence manual. Given the date of publication, I believe that there was nothing obscure to British services regarding the Italian armed forces. Moreover, it is very rare that in this kind of documents there are color plates and this makes it even more interesting. From what I see, they are very well done and respond to Italian regulations and therefore very reliable

Since it seems to me made of loose sheets, you could scan the pages and so let's see if British intelligence has been equal to its international reputation ...

Best regards
