Product Information
Specification
Italy: WW2 Commemorative medal of the 3rd 
Alpine Division "Julia" of the Italian Royal 
Army, for the Invasion and Occupation of 
Albania.
On the obverse: The mountainous terrain of 
Albania, an Alpine Soldier & Gjergj Kastrioti 
(Skanderbeg), the Albanian National Hero.
On the reverse: The map of the Northern part 
of Albania - the Division's area of operation, 
circumscribed "Division Julia in Albania"
The Italian campaign in Albania lasted just 9 
days, as the Italian forces faced practically no 
resistance and suffered negligible casualties. 
Following the Italian victory, the Albanian King 
Zog I forced into exile, on 15 Apr. 1939 Albania 
withdrew from the League of Nations and the 
country became part of the Italian Empire, as 
a separate kingdom in personal union with the 
Italian Crown.
A scarce medal as the majority of the men of
Julia, never made it back to Italy, as on 28 Oct. 
1940 Italy attacked Greece from Albania and 
Julia (a Division of aprox. 9000 men strength) 
suffered overall 9317 casualties until the end 
of the Greco-Italian War (Apr. 1941).
