Chapter Summary

This is the conclusory chapter of the book, which demonstrates the adaptability of Allied forces during the campaigns in the Mediterranean. A range of challenging circumstances existed to confound the ability of Allied forces in North Africa and Italy to achieve decision in the campaigns fought from 1942-1945. It shows how the exigencies of war forced Free French and Vichy French airmen to work together to form a new military organization that fed productively into the broader Allied war effort. Many contributing organizations swelling the ranks of the Allied war effort in 1942 and 1943 brought particular strengths of their own to play in the campaigns in North Africa and Italy. The book shows how training in the Indian Army effectively translated a model for continually developing fighting effectiveness evolved on the North West Frontier of India to the new tactical problems faced against German forces in Italy.
