Condition: Very Good
Cover: Italy's Army Chief Marshal Rodolfo "Lucky" Graziani.
One of the biggest men in the Italian army (6ft. 4in), he towers
over the subtle little men he commands shown on page 38.
Now 58, a devote Catholic, he earned the title, Marquis of
Neghelli in the war on Ethiopia. For 2 years he was viceroy there,
a notably unexcitable, hardboiled Italian. When the Ethiopians
bombed 38 wounds in him he massacred them by the hundreds.
His family motto is, " An enemy forgiven is more dangerous than
a thousand foes."
