At El Alamein the Italo-German army is blocked and forced to retreat. Alongside the Germans against the English, there are also Italians, that make up a badly armed but valiant army, totally abandoned unto themselves, but proud and capable of heroic acts against a much stronger enemy and an ally that despises them. The Ariete, Trieste, pavia and Brescia divisions, the paratroopers of Folgore, the 31st battallion of Genio have carried out their duty to the full, despite enormous difficulties, with soldiers in the front lines, fighting against dissentery and thirst, in impossible conditions, in a hostile environment where men are fighting daily for their survival.
