Italy had had paratroops since 1938, when the first units were set up in their Libyan possession. The ‘Infantry of the Air’ grew steadily and received the best training, making them an elite in the Royal Army just as paratroops were elsewhere. However most were destined never to use their specialist skills, and were instead deployed as elite infantry, never making a jump into action. A few did jump as part of tiny raids on targets behind enemy lines, but the intended major action for the paratroops, the assault on Malta, was cancelled. Some jumped to occupy Cefalonia in April 1941, but they met no resistance, and a few jumped in Operation Herring 1 in 1945, using American aircraft and with partly British equipment. Nevertheless as ground troops Italy’s paratroops made a great name for themselves.

The sculpting is very nice, with Caesar’s always excellent proportions and thoroughly three-dimensional poses, aided as usual by some multi-part moulds. There is no flash however so this is still a very nicely produced product.

This abridged appraisal is supplied care of Plastic Soldier Review.
