(being a daily report of a solo wargame campaign)
7th September 1939
The Italians had not yet declared war but began to prepare. Italy itself produces 5 IPCs per month, Libya 1 and Italian East Africa 1. IPCs were stored for the construction of cargo ships expected to be needed in the Mediterranean for contact with Libya.
The main battle fleet is at Taranto in the south. Industry is concentrated in the north, as are the army corps.
