Product Information

ITALY: WW2 Commemorative Military Medal for the Italian Expedition 
(Campaign) in Albania (7 - 16 Apr. 1939).
Rare, initial, unmarked, type "A" version of the medal (3 other, posterior 
types exist as well).
The Medal was instituted in 1940 to be awarded to military and civilian 
participants in the Italian occupation of Albania. 
The number "XVII" (17) refers to the 17th year of fascist rule in Italy (since 
1922). 
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.
