The intention behind this book and its follow - on volume is to provide a ready reference source for historians, wargamers, and interested parties who may have been involved in the theatres shown. It will also provide the aviation enthusiast with comprehensive and extensive information not readily found in other publications. It is also the only detailed account of all the unit movements and equipment, to date.
Due to the extent of the information I have uncovered ( some of which is published for the first time ), I have had to expand this book into two volumes. The second currently in preparation, will cover the remaining Gruppi ( up to 171 Gruppo ), the independant Squadriglie ( 120 to 616 Sq Autonomo ), Operational maps and unit insignia.
( ... ) The period covered by these volumes does not extend to a full history of pre - war and post - war activities, due to space limitations. Thus, only the combat period June 10th, 1940 to September 8th, 1943 is noted. ( ... ) In the following pages I hope to show the extent of the Regia Aeronautica's commitment to the various theatres they were expected to cover.
