Italian running the blockade

Post by BDV » 14 Jul 2016 15:55

How effective was the Allied blockade set-up in preventing Italian ships from breaching the blockade for Germany in the September 1939- May 1940?

In particular, how effective were Italian ships in maintaining material exchanges with Japan?
