Product Reviews

German / Italian - African Medal was instituted by the Italian Government to reward the achievements of Rommel’s Afrika Korps. The medal was awarded only to German troops and the first presentations took place in 1942.The obverse of the medal is concave and features two gladiators symbolizing Italy and Germany doing battle with a crocodile, which symbolizes Britain. The reverse shows a swastika and fasces, each on one side of the Italian Felini Arch again depicting Italo-German cooperation. Under the arch is the Royal Knot of the House of Savoy. Around the rim of the reverse is the inscription “Italo-German Campaign in Africa” in German (on the side of the swastika) and in Italian separated on top and bottom by two single leaves.
