Special Video Presentation By Fabio Bezoari

In June 1940 Benito Mussolini , having declared his allegiance to Hitler’s Nazi regime flexed his military muscles by invading France through the Alpine boundary between the two countries.

Neither side were particularly well prepared and the conflict only lasted for 11 days. Using video and lecture, Fabio will take us through a conflict that was full of strategic and technical mistakes , leading to a useless loss of lives and equipment.
