This is Hollow Legions, the return of the Italian order of battle to print in an all-new 3rd edition. The 3rd edition fuses the original Italian ASL Core Module with those desert elements of West of Alamein that were not reproduced in the updated For King and Country module.

This edition of Hollow Legions also includes the rules and scenarios from Soldiers of the Negus (originally published by ELR) which expands the Italian theater to East Africa and the Second Italo-Ethiopian War of 1935-36. This was Mussolini's war of aggression to conquer Ethiopia (Abyssinia) from Emperor Haile Selassie's largely tribal armies, and is widely seen as a precursor to World War 2. A full complement of new counters and rules for Ethiopian (Allied Minor) and Eritrean (allied with Italy) forces is included.
