Dragon 1:35 - Italian Paratroopers, Anzio 1944 - Plastic Model Kit #6741

The Italian Paratroopers Division "Nembo" was officially formed in November 1942. Following the armistice of September 1943 which stipulated the surrender of Italy to the Allies, violent conflicts arose in the division with some units wishing to comply with the directives of the Italian Government and others refusing to accept the change of alliances. As a result some of the "Nembo" division units became part of the Italian Co-belligerent Army and fought alongside the Allies for the liberation of Italy, while others remained on the German side. The latter participated in the German counterattack at Anzio since February 1944. The Battle of Anzio was part of the Italian Campaign of WWII which started with Operation Shingle, the Allied amphibious landing on the 22nd of January 1944, and ended in June 1944 with the capture of Rome.

This kit contains over 60 parts for the assembly of four figures of Italian paratroopers. The paratroopers are wearing a mix of Italian and German uniforms - German Fallschirmjager smocks and Italian helmets and vests. Weapons and accessories are also a mix of Italian and German.
