* AAVV is for various authors

Important note: the pictures presented in this site are from publications of the War time, especially from Appello al mare! and from magazines of the same period. I took just a few (two, if I remember well) pictures from a modern book (the Historical Almanac) and they were not copyrighted. The data about the order of battle of Regia Marina is taken from the Almanacco storico delle navi militari italiane 1861-1995, published by the Italian Navy's Historical Office (relative to the end of 1939), integrated with data taken from History books named in the table. From the same book (in English: Historical almanac of Italian warship 1861-1995) I took the statistic about warships, if not otherwise stated on the statistic's page. The models' pictures are scanned from the Delphi Models catalogue. See author's note for more detailed information about photographs and pictures copyright.
