- DESCRIPTION: During the Second World War the Alpine Divisions were employed on numerous fronts. In 1942 the Italian Shipping Corps was sent to the Russian front, in support of the Wermacht, which included the Alpine Julia, Tridentina and Cuneense Divisions. The Italian Alpini took an active part in defending the front of the Don but were surrounded by numerous troops of the Red Army. The Alpine Divisions were forced to retreat with a long and heroic march, in often prohibitive conditions, through the cold stretches of the Russian steppe. During the retreat they were engaged in difficult clashes. The most famous is the battle of Nikolajewka in January 1943. This box contains 46 figures 2 horses in plastic to paint (colors not included).
