Default Looking for autobiographies of Italian soldiers in North Africa

I have started taking Italian courses, so am looking for autobiographies of Italian soldiers who fought in North Africa in 1940-1942 to read.
I already have:
-Le 300 ora a nord di Quatarra
-Folgore... e si moriva
-I ragazzi della Folgore
-Caccia-Dominioni's book about Alamein, I forget the title.

Any other suggestions would be very welcome. Keep in mind it is autobiographies I am interested in.

Thanks

JL

Hello,
This is nice, it is from a self-propelled battery commander.


Ciao

Thanks for these suggestions, I will look into them. I only want autobiographic texts though, not unit histories.
