Fascist Italian Medal 9th Army 1940 Greece -Albania War
Very nice fascist Italian 9th Army (9 Armata) medal commemorating the 1940-1941 campaign in Greece and Albania (Given on the medal as Grecia E Jugoslavia). This famous campaign was basically a disaster and required the involvement of German forces to save the day. This of course caused a delay in the German invasion of Russia spelling disaster for the enterprise. One could say that this poorly planned and poorly executed campaign by the Italians drastically changed the course of history. Ever see the movie Butterfly Effect? Cool medal for sure.
