History of the military in Italy is complex due to the fact that Italy wasn’t even a country until 1860 And was dominated by several foreign nations until Garibaldi led his army to victory and the Unification of the country (well, most of it) in 1860.
Since my personal research focus is south Italy I am going to concentrate on that for the history part. But the presentation will apply to the whole country.
I plan to cover Italy’s military history, it’s divisions, the Leva and other lists, the role of the military, service and discharge records and Military Tribunals.
I’m looking forward to meeting you all and hope there will be time for questions.
