Description

A scarce 760th Tank Bn. DUI, hallmarked “Castelli…/Roma / Milano.”  Pin back and two piece construction. The 760th tank Bn., and independent tank unit supported the 88th Infantry Division in the first three days of combat in Italy at Santa Marie Infante.  The new division was not yet up to speed on infantry-tank combat, or Air -ground coordinated actions, but working with tanks proved to be the better of the support needs.  The 760th preferred to follow the infantry, at a distance, and then move forward quickly when needed.

35mm high.

Fine- excellent condition.
