Axis Minors

Recommended Posts

I thought I'd post some links and stuff on the axis minors, if anyone has any links on anything in regards to the Romanians, Italians and Hungarians and Finland maybe you could pass it along. I can't hardly find anything on the Hungarians or Italians on the net.

I'll start with the Finns first.

I don't suppose you came across any caches of color photographs of head shots of minor axis re-enactors staring directly into the camera by any chance ? Please say no, because if you did, I might have to start another unit portrait set.

There's some nice Italian material at Commando Supremo, along with a pretty good forum on Italy in WWII. There's also an astonishing number of Italian fascist sites out there that glorify Mussolini, disclaimers notwithstanding. A weird combination of creepy and unintentionally funny. I found them when I was looking for WWII Italian music, of which there is quite a lot (some of it very good, some of it incredibly bad). From the sounds of it the same guy who was writing songs for Fred Astaire may also have been writing songs for Mussolini when he invaded Africa.
