During World War II (1939 - 1945), the Kingdom of Italy had a very varied and tumultuous military history. While the Italian forces are widely viewed as weak by victorious populations, historians believe this was largely down to circumstance poor equipment and ineffective political leadership rather than inherent inferiority. Indeed the Italian troops themselves were often praised by their opponents.
