Igs:'I think that what many people don't realize is how good the Regia Marina was. It fought well and bravely if not up to British standards, at least it was in the game.'
Well, more or less. At Calabria, the Italian force broke off after one hit from Warspite (My fav ever battleship). The crews did well enough, though Italian Navy leadership was... somewhat lacking.
There's a new question, was there a sucky navy of WW2 ? <g> Even the ones that achieved little, still showed that their crews could fight when called to.
